Reasons Why You Need To Pay Your Taxes

By Greg Pierce

“Our tax is a sort of income of the government by means of charges enforced on merchandises, services, general commodities and income of its citizens. It is primarily used to fund government establishments and projects aimed at developing a country, and other similar purposes.

A government would certainly be very hopeless in coping up with the different needs of a society without enough funds. Taxes help the government to build roads, schools, hospital, fire stations and the such. But even so, many people hate to pay tax and some even try to find ways to avoid paying them and are called tax evaders.

Complaints regarding the fairness of tax payments come mostly from salaried workers who are earning less than those who are corporately rich. Because of this majority of them work in underground economies, risking themselves of being arrested and punished by the law.

People become frustrated because of the fewer and costly public services which is worsened due to high taxes. This is even ignited with poor health care system and educational system.

However, it is important for us to know that the government uses tax to provide social security, public health benefits, public education, maintain public peace and order, funding for national defense, for paying government debt and for overseas aid.

Taxes are used to provide public services and goods. At the same time, the government also provides employment opportunities for its citizen. Public services like public schools, public hospital and police stations will definitely provide jobs to teachers, doctors, dentists and nurses, and to policemen.

Not only are taxes used for provision of public services and goods but it is also used to redistribute wealth to the unfortunate. Take a look at the social welfare system, for instance. The government provides financial aids to those in need and have certain benefits to help alleviate their sufferings.

It could also be used to manipulate the economy. Government usually imposes higher taxes rates on imported good and less tax rates on exported commodities to help local producers earn more. Taxes can also be used to control the quantity of product that might flood the market and cause terrible losses to local manufacturers.

Therefore, when you make your next tax payment, you don’t need to feel frustrated and you don’t need to resent the government for forcing you to do something that you don’t want to. Just think of what your tax can do for you and of course for others.
