Carriage Taxes Were Just the Beginning

Carriage Taxes Were Just the Beginning

NEWS HISTORY

On August 27, 1799, the Sentinel of Freedom contained an article about the enacting of the carriage tax passed by Congress in 1794.

The Centinel of Freedom was a weekly newspaper published in Newark, New Jersey from 1796-1823.

Most people of the 18th century traveled by foot. If you had some money you could afford to travel by horse or by some small boats, but the most luxurious way to travel at the time was by a four-wheeled horse carriage.

On June 6, 1794, Congress passed a tax on carriage-owners: “tax on carriages for the conveyance of persons, kept for the use of the owner.”

The tax took 5 years to be in forced due to some backlash from citizens against the tax. This backlash leads to a famous court case known as Hylton Vs. United States.

Hylton argued that the tax went against Article 1, Clause 9 that required all direct taxes to be apportioned among the states. The Justices ruled that it was an indirect tax rather than a direct tax.
