In 1855 Jane Carlyle, wife of historian Thomas Carlyle, appeared before the General Commissioners of Income Tax to appeal against her husband's assessment. Moulded around her memoire of the appeal, this paper explores the process of and social context for mid-nineteenth century English income taxation of profits, and the associated accountings and processes of accountability. It reveals how local tax authorities employed sovereign powers as the basis for regulatory control. The paper outlines conditions of possibility for the emergence of modern Inland Revenue powers based on disciplinary technologies. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
