    1. 2. Read and translate the text.

A tax has been defined as a compulsory charge imposed upon persons and businesses for purposes. Many persons today pay more 20 per cent to their incomes in direct or indirect taxes.

There are the following theories in accordance with which taxes may be levied:

a) There is the benefit theory. According to it, the more benefit you get from the government, the more you ought to pay. Those are in various ways dependent, such as detectives or those who go to free clinics, should pay the greater part of the taxes. This theory is, of course, largely impractical.

b) There is the equal-distribution theory. Each person should pay the same tax, say a 3 per cent rate. Proportional taxes do not distribute the burden of taxation equitably.

c) There is the ability theory. Adam Smith expressed this theory nearly two centuries ago: “The subject of every state ought to contribute toward the support of the government as nearly as possible in proportion to their respective abilities, that is, in proportion to the revenue which they respectively enjoy under the protection of the state”.

In general, there are two kinds of taxes, direct and indirect. The property taxes are direct, as also income taxes and inheritance taxes. A direct tax is one that cannot be shifted from the person upon whom it is levied to somebody else. An indirect tax is one which may be, and usually is, shifted from the persons upon whom it is levied. The sales tax is an indirect tax. It is levied, not directly on the individual, but on goods which the individual purchases. And some people are not aware that they are paying it. The excise tax on wines, spirits, and cigarettes is a “hidden” or indirect tax.

Governments often prefer to raise money by indirect taxes because they are less noticeable and seem less burdensome. Indirect taxes are sometimes levied on luxury goods on the theory that those who can afford these luxuries should pay for the privilege of enjoying them.

The income tax, it has been said previously, is a direct tax. It is progressive in character, which means that the rate is higher on the higher incomes. Further, it is an elastic tax. The rates can be quickly changed if the government needs more money. One defect of the income tax is, of course, the fact that some people make no returns at all or make false returns on their tax sheet. It is this necessary for the government to keep a small army of officials to check on dishonesty.
