On or before April 15th of each year millions of Americans rush to fill out and send in their annual income tax forms. The history of taxation in this country is very long, but originally the US government could not tax its citizens, and only by a later Constitutional Amendment it was able to carry out this function. Before 1919 Tax Day was on March 15th and was not changed to April 15th until 1954 to alleviate the work of the IRS employees with all of the late forms coming in.
