Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I will give the best answer that I can with the information provided.


The Federal Income Tax system has been modified many times since 1939 (year that tax laws were codified), and tax rates have gone up and down, but the amendment (16th) that established the income tax has never been repealed.
