Amendment 16: Status of Income Tax Clarified

"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."

This amendment granted the United States the right to collect income tax without accounting for the population of the states.
