Homework Help: Government

Posted by Jaden on Saturday, June 16, 2007 at 11:55pm.

Why does the Constitution allow the Federal Government to levy taxes? I'm not quite sure as to why but would the answer be that the Constitution allows the federal government to levy taxes because of Congress?

Your question was answered yesterday. Did you read the sections of the constitution indicated? If not, here's a link to a helpful website:

As to WHY Congress can levy taxes, the reason must be obvious. How would the government run if it had no income, no money? Then ask yourself who makes up "the government" and the answers should be clear.

Please post what YOU think the answer is and someone here will critique your thinking.
