TAXATION

The truism attributed to Benjamin Franklin that “ .. in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes” is a fair reflection of modern life. However, it is also true that most people resent paying taxes even though they know that taxes are needed to provide everything we expect from the State.

Notwithstanding that, no-one has a duty to pay more than their share and to quote Judge Learned Hand

“Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; …. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands.”
