In evaluating taxes focus on the following questions:

  • Who ought to pay taxes?

  • What types of taxes should be levied?

  • Who will actually pay the tax?

2. What are the principal taxes you and your family pay? Add the sales taxes, property taxes and others together to determine what percentage of your family’s income is actually spent on taxes.

3. What taxes do businesses pay?

4. A «good tax» is said to have the following characteristics:

  • Fairness — based on the ability to pay. A tax should also treat people equally.

  • Clarity and certainty — Taxpayer should know the rate of the tax and how it is to be paid.

  • Convenience of payment — easy for taxpayers to pay and easy for government to collect.

  • Ease of administration — cost of collecting a tax should be low.

  • Flexibility — adjusts to economic conditions (in prosperous times the tax should collect more revenue and in hard times less).
