Tax History

Throughout the history of civilization, taxes have been levied by governments to fund things such as civic projects, the wealth of rulers, and wars, to name a few. Taxes are so old that they can be traced back to Biblical times, as there are several references to them within the good book. These taxes were thought to be such a good idea that they kept them all the way up until present day!

We aim to provide a comprehensive tax history of the world, from the earliest times to present day in our publications. This documentary will explain each major development in tax history, and as you read it you will understand more fully the roots of our modern day taxation system.
