Governments across the world are dependent on taxes for development of their countries. There are countries which levy same rate of tax on all range of income earners.In contrast, few countries depend on tax revenues which are complex, and vary depending on income range. I agree to this kind of tax system, as it is egalitarian. I believe that taxes have to be based on the income earned. It is not a good idea to collect equal taxes from rich and poor.
To begin, governments where the tax rates are equal for all the people create burden to lower and average income earners. The basic essence of equality is lost with this kind of tax system. Though this tax system is very simple and easy to understand, the negatives that it creates among people is to be considered.
Countries which follow different rates of tax depending on the income earned by individual decrease the gap between different communities. In India tax rate is based on individual’s income, this kind of system encourages equality. The complexity of the tax system can be overcome by softwares available in the market.
In addition, governments should never create gap between different classes of society, rather they should create peace and give people a happy environment to live with.
In conclusion, I believe that tax rate should be dependent on the salary. Though this kind of tax system is complex to understand, it is good for development of the nation. Simple tax systems create gap between different sectors.
