Pretty sure, there are times in your life that you pay your financial duties to e filing with a frown or a pout. You are probably thinking that if you sum up all the amounts you have paid, you will be able to buy yourself something grand. And if there are ways that you can get away without paying, you probably would do it. But, there is no way out of it. We all must pay these expenses.
The truth of the matter is and, in the long run, we can all benefit from the taxes we pay. If you are wondering where all your money goes, here are some of the things the governing powers utilise them on:
Public Utilities and Amenities
The street lights that illuminate the alley, those benches you sit on in the park, and those newly repaired highways are funded by the money you give to the government. A part of your taxes is used for the maintenance of these public facilities and many more. Without giving your dues to the government, you will probably be living in an unliveable place.
Healthcare and Education
In some ways, you will also help send some children (including your own if you have any) to public schools complete with all the necessary facilities like libraries and computer stations. Your tax can also help the sick get better and improve medical services and amenities.
Taxes are also used by the government to purchase fire trucks and police cars that will help the officers respond to your emergency needs. Moreover, the money will help fund the proper training of the country’s security forces.
You see, shelling out that extra money is not so bad after all. Thus, you must diligently pay it and do so on time! This way, you will not have to pay for the penalties.
