Historical Irrelevance: William Pitt intoduces income tax in 1799 at a rate of two shillings per pound . ten percent. as a temporary measure to pay for war with France. This was termporarily repealed and reinstated. We have not engaged in any military action against France as a whole since 1815 and Vichy France since 1944 and yet the tax unsuprisingly remains in force.
