Taxation baby.

Taxation

Hi you all.

Taxation is a very controversial topic. I have come up with this new idea. Can’t the government deliver goods and services in return for payment to deliver the goods and services that a country needs. If this is the case nobody would have to pay taxes.

What do you say on this?

Well, could you elaborate on the difference between your proposal and the present taxation scheme in nearly every country? Usually it works like so: A country levies a tax on all of its citizens, and then uses the money to fund defense programs such as national guard, armies and social programs such as medical aid and universities, etc. In short, the goods and services you mentioned for a payment.

You do know that in China or Japan (I believe) they do actually tax you having more than (two I think) children. This is because of the dense population, though I do not know for sure the information of the tax.

Though that is excatly what is supposed to happen. Pretty much what he said, but in U.K we have NHS (National Health Service) and you have all services funded by tax.

I just find it quite annoying that they make it so complicated. The general public has no idea how to do their taxes correctly, so they rely on tax software or specialists that charge them. And due to the ever-changing tax laws their are relient on the "experts". I think it is just one of those industries created and active due to a niche, the niche being the government. I suppose their wish to have entire industries that are fundamentally useless but provide jobs for citizens which stimulates the economy or some such...tax form #94241A, just make it simple..

To be quite honest, I'm all in favour of high taxation. Most of my friends would probably think I were mad if they knew.

To the best of my knowledge it is China that encourages it's citizens to have only one child, the state then sees to the childs medical and educational expenses after the parents sign an agreement saying they will only have one. If they go on and have a second child they are billed for the expenses paid towards the first child as a penalty. I don't know if they give them (the parents) any additional tax incentives other than what I outlined. I could be wrong though.

I am fully for taxes, as long as the government maintains their end of the deal...

I think taxes are needed, but i also think they are not playing it fair.
They raise taxes on needful things like gas and energy or even cigarettes and other daily products, cuz they know we will buy them anyway.
And they treat you good as long as you pay lots of money to them, but if something goes wrong, nobody's home..
So same goes for the govenments, i think there is too much corruption..

My biggest problem is not the taxes, but more what they are used for. Government spending is largely out of control. Why is it so many people work thier butts off for small wages all over the world, and at the same time theres a government employee making good coin to sit on his/her backside and do little. (just one example in a million that I'm sure could be brought up on government overspending.)

Taxes are important to fund important things such as education, infrastructure and developments to the country which will be beneficial in the long term.. I am not really against the idea of taxation.. and i believe the government in my country does spend the money wisely on useful stuff and not misuse them..

You have never paid a sales tax or a meal tax in a resturant, or even a toll on a public highway? Those are all part the taxation system too, it's not all about just income tax. There's only two things in life you can't get around...death & taxes.
