Tax bite #36

Hat tax was introduced in 1784 and applied only to men’s hats. Hat sellers had to acquire licences and each hat had to have a tax-stamp on its lining. It seems that many tried to avoid the tax by claiming that their head-gear was not, in fact, a hat. This led to amendments to the legal definition of a hat in 1804. The tax was abolished in 1851.
