I know that many people are in doubt and most likely don't feel like giving a part of their hard earned money to the government by paying taxes. However, I think it is necessary to pay government taxes because that is the money the government use to develop the country for a better living quality. Although it is true that sometimes the money does fall into wrong hands and misused, but some of the money are really used for development purposes. I will willingly paying taxes to the government.

Paying the tax from our hard earned income is really a pain. No body pays tax as much as the salaried person p[ays to the Government. Businessmen, actors, Film producers, Doctors, Lawyrers, Professors taking personal tuitions are not liable to pay the right tax. No body is bothered like a salaried person. In my view the professional who are earning more than the salaried people whose tax is deducted at the source itself i.e by employer shoould be liable to pay double the tax a salaried person is paying.

I want to pay taxes to help support my government, but I do not like that the rich don't have to pay. I think the whole tax system needs to be revamped then let us vote on it.

I believe that overall the avergae person gets a tax rebate - especially those in higher tax brackets. If you work in the US, it takes the average person working about a month to pay in all their taxes for the entire year.

Its best to work under the table because people who make minimum wage get hurt the most.

I definetly agree with you ,we all earn by giving lal our efforts and sweating the whole year. They are charging us too much from what we earn. Even they are not utilizing the money getting from us properly.
