Taxation is and always has been a major issue that divides people and is often what distinguishes one political party and ideology from another. Since few people enjoy having a significant chunk of their income stopped at source, the electorate will consequently often look favourably on politicians who promise to keep taxes Low. Indeed, it is a brave political Leader who proposes to raise taxes when standing for election.

In my view, taxation is essential if key services are to be provided but it is also something that needs to be more transparent. For example, there are certain services we all use to a greater or lesser extent. These services include everything from street cleaning to social services, from education to crime prevention. We all need the Local council to remove our garbage and the police to keep our streets and ourselves safe. Taxation would appear to be the most effective way of paying for these services.

However, it is clearly a challenge to make people feel that the tax system is fair and works for the benefit of individuals and society in general. I feel that the answer lies in accountability. Technology is such today that we should be able to keep track of how governments and local councils are spending the money they raise from taxation and we should be able to hold them to account if money is not spent properly.

This will not stop the debate over high or Low taxation, but it will at least make what happens to the money we pay more transparent.
