TAX UPDATE: The Stamp Act

March 22, 1765, King George issues new Tax on the colonist!

What is the stamp act?

The king is forcing all of ye colonist to pay for every piece of printed paper including, Ship's papers, legal documents, licenses, newspapers, other publications, and even playing cards.

Why do they call it the stamp act? They called it the stamp act because they put a stamp on the piece of paper that you have or bought so they know you paid the Tax.

We are forcing this tax to help king George as well as the British soldiers from the previous war

If you do not pay this tax the result is jail. :(
