Was America taxed in the Stamp Act?
Yes, America was taxed in the Stamp Act in 1765
Declaratory Act, (1766), a declaration by the British Parliament that accompanied the repeal of the Stamp Act. It stated that the British Parliament's taxing authority was the same in America as in Great Britain. Parliament had directly taxed the colonies for revenue in the Sugar Act (1764) and the Stamp Act (1765).
The colonists, angry that the British government passed an act that taxed such important items for daily life (the Stamp Act - Taxed all printed material), protested against the act. They also boycotted the taxed items, but paper was (and still is) used all the time in an average person's daily life. Eventually, the Stamp Act, with many other acts, angered many colonists. With that, the Revolutionary War began.
