Taxation without Representation


The Beinging of the taxes!

The British  began taxeing the colonist when the British got in war debts. The four acts that taxed them were the Sugar Act, Quartering Act, Stamp Act, and the Townshend Act.

The Sugar Act

In 1764, the British Parliament passed the Sugar act which taxed the Spanish and the French molasses and sugar that the colonist bought. The reason the British taxed the colonist was because they had to pay off their war debts.
