What are Taxes?

The word tax stems from the Latin root taxo, meaning "rate". These rates, or financial charges, are imposed on an individual or legal entity and are a compulsory contribution to a state or a state's equivalent. Taxes are in turn used to fund and support public expenditures, including education, government, and other designated areas and projects. Taxes may be indirect, such as a sales tax, or direct tax, such as property tax or income tax. A failure to pay one's taxes is punishable by law.

The Purpose of Taxes

As stated briefly above, money collected through taxes can be used to fund various functions. The primary function of taxes is to finance government expenditures. Activities supported by taxes can include law enforcement and maintaining public order, war expenditures, infrastructure (repairing roads, legal tender, etc.), public works projects, the operation of government, social engineering, and the protection of property.

Furthermore, a portion of taxes are allotted to pay off any debts or interests that the state may accumulate. Public education, health care systems, public transportation, unemployment, and pensions or retirement funds all fall under the umbrella of welfare and public services, which are also supported through taxes.

Types of Taxes

There are multiple forms of taxes that an individual or legal entity may be subject to. These include, but are not limited to, the following taxes:

  • Income Tax
  • Sales Tax
  • Property Tax
  • Negative Income Tax
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Payroll Tax
  • Corporate Tax
  • Social Security Contributions
  • Estate Tax
  • Inheritance Tax
  • Value Added Tax (VAT)
  • Tariffs
