my professor told us in our class, one cannot avoid two things in all his life, one is death, the other one is paying tax. it seem like a kidding,but it is exactly truth.

He is absolutely right. Never the less, there was a tax in my country called graduated tax which a lot of peasants used to avoid. They would pay for just one person in the village and then everybody would use the tax ticket when going to hospital for treatment. The rest of the men in the vllage would always be very vigilant to avoid arrest by the local administration police. They often would run away into the bushes and return home only when they were sure the tax men have gone. Difficult life but yes, peasants in my village used to successfully dodge graduated tax. Ofcourse they wouldnt doge indirect taxes on matches or salt.
