- This article is about the popular dance movement of the 1940s. For taxation by governments, see Taxes.
The Tax is a very specialised dance move from the early 1940's, specifically to be performed while doing the, at the time, popular jitterbug. Being a very rare move, details can be fuzzy, but it is generally agreed upon amongst jitterbug scholars that the Tax was performed by picking up your partner from the dance floor, spinning him or her around 180 degrees on a vertical axis and slamming him or her face-first into the floor. The rarity of people who've seen this move in action is usually attributed to the difficulty of performing the move (the Taxer must be physically strong and the Taxee would need to be either fearless or have an extremely strong facial build) and its tendency to be fatal.
