Supporting and Defending Maritime TradeIn 1789, when the new federal government needed a national source of revenue, Congress turned to the sea. They placed a tax on imports, created the Customs Service to collect it and established federal oversight for lighthouses to ensure safer passage for commerce. A year later, the armed Revenue Cutter Service was born to reduce the tax losses from smuggling.
