Government

Why does the Constitution allow the Federal Government to levy taxes?

Reading Article 1, Section 8 in the Constitution my answer should be that the Constitutio does not allow the Federal Government to levy taxes but gives that power to Congress?...right?

Congress is one of the three parts of the federal government. Congress has the right to levy taxes according to our Constitution.



Dont forget the sixteenth admendment, as well as article I, section 8.
