Homework Help: taxes

Posted by jon on Saturday, April 14, 2007 at 2:58pm.

Why does the constituition allow the federal government to levy taxes?

I've looked in my book and i got parts of the constituition that talks about taxes but it doesnt answer the question of WHY. I really need some help.

Please read the Preamble again. It takes money to fulfill the purposes of the Constitution.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
