What country were you looking for, Pirate?

New question: The 16th amendment to the US Constitution made the income tax legal. In what year was the 16th amendment ratified?

If no one gets the right year, the closest answer wins, so guess away!

I believe it was Sweden but it looks to me Switzerland might have them beat so that is why I declared Roland the winner

It was actually 1913, the year Wilson took office. Your turn, Salty.

I was guessing 186x based on the fact it was 1st levied as a limited situation that was supposed to be recinded. reference: In order to help pay for its war effort in the American Civil War, Congress imposed its first personal income tax in 1861. It was part of the Revenue Act of 1861 (3% of all incomes over US $800; rescinded in 1872). (looked that up later)
