Until 1920 tariff and stamp taxes comprised up to 77% of Mexican tax revenue. The tax system was comprehensively modified for greater equality in the 1920’s, so that, for example, an income tax was first introduced in 1924. The item on offer here sets forth the Mexican stamp tax law (taxes on all official paper) of February 14, 1856.
