Some people believe that they should be able to keep all the money they earn, and should not have to pay tax to the state.
To what extent do you agree or disagree.
A few people think that they should be allowed to retain their earnings to themselves, and they should not be liable to pay a significant portion of their salaries as a tax to the government as this money has been earned by them through hard work. From my perspective, every citizen should pay tax to the state as it is crucial to keep the country economically stable; however, the tax ratio should be as less as possible so that people can enjoy their lives.
Every country’s citizens work hard to earn money for themselves and their siblings, but a considerable percentage of their wages are cut by the tax departments, resulting in influencing the ordinary person’s living standard. In many lesser developed countries, daily products, such as wheat, milk, sugar prices are higher than individuals’ income; eventually, these kinds of circumstances force common people to think, “why are they paying tax from their salaries?” . As a matter of fact, it is a valid question and should be answered by authorities.
On the other hand, I also believe that governing a state requires funds, and governments impose several types of taxes, for instance, salary tax, general sales tax, to generate revenue. Any country's stock exchange market will crash if there is a significant tax collection difference than the expected value. Consequently, people will suffer from it as the government would not be able to provide facilities such as building new roads, bridges, public hospitals, public parks.
In conclusion, people should pay taxes to the state as tax collection is the backbone of the country's economy, but officials should introduce new policies for the taxpayers, for example, free medics, free education. Furthermore, the tax percentage should be different for the rich and poor. Rich people should be liable to pay higher tax value, while the poor should be given relaxation.
