The American Revenue Act of 1764, so called Sugar Act, was a law that attempted to curb the smuggling of sugar and molasses in the colonies by reducing the previous tax rate and enforcing the collection of duties. Many perceived the Sugar Act as an infringement of their constitutional rights because they were, for the first time, taxed to raise revenue for the benefit of the crown. Most colonial residents would agree these Acts violated their colonial rights of “No taxation without representation

The Stamp Act of 1765, took things to a whole new level. The Act marked Parliament's very first attempt to tax the colonists directly for activity that occurred solely within the colonies themselves. All prior taxes had to do with regulation of shipping. By placing higher taxes on goods traded with foreign countries in Britain, demand was higher for British made goods. This caused open rebellion on the part of the colonists.

The "Townshend Acts,” were a series of acts passed, beginning in 1767, by the Parliament of Great Britain and named after Charles Townsend, Chancellor of the Exchequer. Historians vary slightly in which acts they include under the heading but five laws are often mentioned: The Revenue Act of 1767, The Indemnity Act of 1767, The Commissioners of Custom Act of 1767, The Vice Admiralty Court Act of 1768 and The New York Restraining Act.

The Townshend Acts were met with widespread resistance in the colonies, prompting the occupation of Boston by British troops in 1768, which eventually resulted in the Boston Massacre of 1770. Most of the new taxes were eventually repealed, but the tax on tea was retained.

The Tea Act of 1773 adjusted import duties in such a way that the East India Company could undersell even smugglers in the colonies. The act was designed to prop up the East India Company which was floundering financially and burdened with 18 million pounds of unsold tea. The colonist responded by dumping three ship loads of tea in Boston Harbor.
