Income tax was temporarily introduced in Britain to fund the Napoleonic wars in 1799.   An income tax was first instituted in Britain on a permanent basis in 1842, at 10% on a income above £60 per year. The highest marginal rate peaked in the Second World War at 99.25% and remained at about 95% until the late 1970s.

The United States did not use an income tax until 1861, as a temporary measure to help finance the Civil War; that tax was repealed in 1871, and no income tax was levied until 1913. From an initial top rate of 7% in 1913, the top rate rose to 77% by 1918 to help finance World War I. The top rate fell to 25% after the war, from 1925 to 1928, but peaked at 94% in 1944 and 1945, and it remained above 90% until it was reduced to 70% by 1964.
