My grandfather’s tax returns

Saw this item in the May 5th Business Week (“Many Historic Returns,” p. 17):

“Ancestry.com . . . has now added an electronic version of U.S. income tax records from 1862 . . . through 1918.  The site, which paid the government $ 46,000 for the rights to digitize the data, displays a listing of annual incomes — for those making more than $600 — as well as inventories of taxable luxury items. . . . “
