Here's a good short exposition of the financing of WWI, including the earliest uses of the Income Tax.

"Progressives" to this day will think it was all well done.

That's a good overview.

There was even a temporary Income Tax imposed during the Civil War -  Lincoln signed the "Revenue Act"  - a 3% tax on all annual incomes over $800.  But this income tax was to pay for the War - not part of a plan for government expansion.   (Still very wrong, imo)
