Are taxes as inevitable as death?

Ronald Reagan once said “Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.”

As we mark the passing of another Tax Day it is interesting to note that until 1862 there were no significant taxes paid by individuals. 

The war of 1812 brought us the first sales tax to help pay for that war, but when the debt was paid off in 1817, are you ready for this? Congress did away with those taxes.
