England, orginator of ridiculous taxes!
Having just filed my taxes, I saw this article on DealNews.com (a favorite website because it’s written with wit) about weird taxes in history:
“Awful Historical Taxes That Make Yours Seem Not So Bad” by Jeff Somogyi, Media Editor at DealNews.com
This article proves why our early countrymen fought against the British. Just look at how many bizarre taxes they invented: A tax on soap and wallpaper? You’ve got to be kidding me – ATTACK!
