As originally enforced, the income tax was one rate on the earnings of
federally chartered corporations - thus a constitutional excise tax.
Brushaber made the mistake that the Union Pacific R.R. was a "state
chartered" corporation, when in fact, it was a federally chartered.
That made the tax legal.
The fraud is when a State corporation is taxed as if it was Federally
The later graduated employee wage tax was created by the "voluntary"
application for the Social Security number, and the Public Employees'
Tax Act of 1939 - which was a kickback "Return of income" tax.
Coincidentally, Government employees covered by Fed pensions,
didn't need to get "Social Security numbers" until the 1970's, if I recall.
This was in accordance with the bankruptcy of the United States corporation
to foreign banking interests.
