Taxation Advice

Taxation :

Is the term by which governments finance their expenditure by imposing charges on citizens and corporate entities.Governments use taxation to encourage or discourage certain economic decisions.

Taxation Principles :

Basic concepts by which a government is meant to be guided in designing and implementing an equitable taxation regime. These include:

Adequacy : Taxes should be just-enough to generate revenue required for provision of essential public services.

Broad Basing : Taxes should be spread over as wide as possible section of the population, or sectors of economy, to minimize the individual tax burden.

Compatibility : Taxes should be coordinated to ensure tax neutrality and overall objectives of good governance.

Convenience : Taxes should be enforced in a manner that facilitates voluntary compliance to the maximum extent possible.

Earmarking : Tax revenue from a specific source should be dedicated to a specific purpose only when there is a direct cost-and-benefit link between the tax source and the expenditure, such as use of motor fuel tax for road maintenance.

Efficiency : Tax collection efforts should not cost an inordinately high percentage of tax revenues.

Equity : Taxes should equally burden all individuals or entities in similar economic circumstances.

Neutrality : Taxes should not favor any one group or sector over another, and should not be designed to interfere-with or influence individual decisions-making.

Predictability : Collection of taxes should reinforce their inevitability and regularity.

Restricted exemptions : Tax exemptions must only be for specific purposes (such as to encourage investment) and for a limited period.

Simplicity : Tax assessment and determination should be easy to understand by an average taxpayer.

Real Property Tax :

A property tax on local real estate that is calculated according to the fair market value of the real estate. That is, a real property tax is assessed as a percentage of the amount for which the owner would be able to sell the property in the current market.
