Some people believe they should keep all the money they have earned and should not pay tax to the state. Do you agree or disagree?

 -[Harpreet Singh Dhillon]
I afflict the statement that individuals should not pay taxes to the state. The government runs the country from the taxes it collects. Taxes are collected only from those that earn above a particular minimum limit. lt is our moral duty to pay taxes.

Tax money collected by government is employed to fund basic amenities, provide various services to citizens and for state administration and projects, running of jails and defence system , and lots of other operations. lt is not wrong to mention that "taxes run a rustic ." Thus, it is vital for a government to form people pay taxes.

Let us analyze why people do not want to pay taxes. The main reason is their dissatisfaction with government in serving them. They blame government for things like lack of infrastructure, poverty and unemployment, but they're not completely wrong as tax income is misused in some or the opposite way in every country. ln developed countries, however, due to higher satisfaction from government's functioning, citizens could also be more willing to pay taxes. Another factor generating dissatisfaction is the tax
structure itself. Often the tax system is complex and it drives people away from paying taxes. lt is additionally felt that the tax rates are high and tax slabs are unequal. So they feel it is not unethical if one goes for minimization or evasion .

Not paying taxes can drastically affect a country's revenue generation, my very own country, lndia, for that matter. But then, it is equally desired that government come up with a good tax structure and also make people aware where the taxes are being diverted. Even lowering the tax rates can help a rustic increase
its collection because it would increase compliance among the taxpayers. Tax reform should even be fast in order that no public grievance or non-compliance remains for long. A proper legal system protected with strict tax laws can produce the simplest results.

Summing up, I reiterate my opinion by saying that it is the duty of each citizen to pay tax and therefore the duty of each government to use it appropriately publicly interest.
