The 16th amendment means that congress can lay and collect taxes without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

On June 16, 1909, President William Howard Taft, in an address to the Sixty-first Congress, proposed a two percent federal income tax on corporations by way of an excise tax and a constitutional amendment to allow the previously enacted income tax.
