A very basic definition of tax—a compulsory contribution to state revenue, levied by the government on workers’ income and business profits or added to the cost of some goods, services, and transactions.
I didn’t get all of that, but in my humble understanding, it sounds like being taxed is not a favourable thing for a person, to say the least. I especially hate the word “compulsory” which basically means it is mandatory and required and you could potentially be in a very bad position if you don’t pay your taxes.
Now why would the government or state give me such a hard time, asking for a percentage of my income and salary, and I don’t even know what happens to that money?
Employers and companies sometimes even just deduct from the employees salary altogether without the complete amount even reaching the worker, just to comply with the law. Maybe that’s why another definition of the word “tax” is “a strain or heavy demand.”
A regular contribution to the country, a duty to give back to our motherland, an obligation to preserve the economy. A bunch of bull? Or maybe there is some truth to that? Maybe the government really needs our money.
Maybe the state can’t do anything without our support. Imagine a government trying to run a country with no money. Here’s a new flash, there’s no such thing.
To audit just sounds so scary when in fact is it literally almost the opposite. How better to NOT be scared of the government or the state when you have your money and taxes audited, or checked by an expert. And by expert, I mean a tax lawyer. They know every nook and cranny of the tax regulations and updated policies (they also know about the penalties too).
So it is actually a great idea to get tax audit help from a lawyer who has had years of experience and can guarantee the best work possible. Of course, when they review and verify your taxes, this doesn’t assure you that you will get away scotfree (you may be a bad taxpayer for all we know, out of ignorance I hope).
But this will help you learn what not to do the next time you are confronted with his situation.
Wait, so you’re telling that giving away my money (forcibly, I must add) to the government actually helps the future of this great nation? You’re killing me. Yup, that’s what I’m trying to tell you.
The hard-earned money that we donate to the government and the state is used for (ready?)—roads, schools, hospitals, policemen, soldiers, teachers, and so much more. You get the point?
