[Middle English, from Old English tēotha.]
Levy imposed by public authority on the incomes of persons or corporations within its jurisdiction. In nations with an advanced system of private enterprise, income taxes represent the chief source of government revenue. Income tax levied on individuals or family units is known as personal income tax. In 1799 Britain enacted a general income tax to finance the Napoleonic Wars. In the U.S. an income tax was first tried during the Civil War; the Supreme Court held it to be constitutional in 1881 but declared another income tax unconstitutional in 1894. In 1913 the 16th Amendment to the Constitution made the personal income tax permanent. The fairness of personal income taxation is based on the premise that one's income is the best single index of one's ability to contribute to the support of the government; most personal income taxes are conceived on the theory that when people's financial circumstances differ, their tax liabilities should also differ. Thus U.S. income taxes are progressive taxes, falling more heavily on those who earn more money, and individual income tax deductions are allowed for items such as interest paid on home mortgage debt, unusual medical expenses, philanthropic contributions, and state and local income and property taxes. Enforcement has been facilitated by withholding the tax from wages and salaries. See also capital gains tax; capital levy; corporate income tax; regressive tax; sales tax; value-added tax.

UNIVERSAL PASTORS' CONVOCATION
Agenda: To discuss new modern-day technology to collect tithes
Installation of ATM machines: Financial data has shown it is easier or quicker to debit bank cards to collect tithes
Electronic Deposits: Financial data has shown it is safe and convenient to utilize Electronic Deposits to collect tithes
Protesters have been marching outside to protest against their sacrilegious agenda carrying posters that read as follows:
- Tithing is an Old Testament Doctrine
- Tithing isn't a New Testament Doctrine
- ATM machines to collect tithes is sacrilege
- Electronic Deposit to collect tithes is blasphemy
Moral of my story is: The Church has become a den of lions and/or thieves. False prophets and Antichrists have come in disguise to collect taxes to afford the luxurious lifestyles of the clergy leaders.

Luk20:9 Jesus has spoken a parable about a certain man who planted a vineyard and rented it out to husbandmen.
Jesus has described how this certain man has sent 3 servant to collect his portion of the royalty. These wicked husbandmen have beated the 3 servants and sent them away. Then the Lord of the vineyard has sent his beloved son.
When these wicked husbandmen have recognized that the rightful heir to the Lord of the vineyard had come to collect his royalty, they murdered him and kept all the proceeds for themselves.
The certain man or Lord of the Vineyard has represented God. We know because Jesus has referred to himself as the true vine and his Father as the husbandman Jhn15:1.
Vineyard has represented God's Church.
Husbandmen have represented the Pharisee and/or Sadducee.
Servants have represented prophets such as Elijah, Isaiah or Jeremiah.
Beloved son or heir has represented our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Parable of a certain man is foretelling of the wicked motive that the Pharisee and/or Sadducee have conspired to carryout his crucifixion.
Tithe of the tithe is a doctrine of the Old Testament. Aaron had been obligated to set aside ten percent of the tithe for God.
Melchisedec and Jesus were high priest. They were entitled to collect ten percent royalty in behalf of God to administer justice.
It is an incumbent duty of saints to purge God's vineyard clean of wicked husbandmen who have come in disguise as good shepherds to fleece God's flock.
Amen!Mar12:42 And there came a certain poor widow and she threw in two mites which make a farthing.
Mat23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and arise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the law and judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Luk11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye have done; and not to leave the other undone.
