    Taxing is a high proportion of government income. Some believe that they should save all the money they earn and not give it to the government for tax. Personally, I am not on board with this view due to the following evidence.

    Governments can make our daily life more convenient by taxing everyone. When the government increases incomes by taxation, the government will not only use the money to pay salaries for government workers but also spend the money on infrastructure. For example, the Jinan government built an underground railway in 2020 by using taxpayers’ money, which made a positive influence on the Jinan transportation. It takes about 45 minutes from the east to the west in Jinan by subway compared with almost 2 hours by car before. It’s more convenient to take the metro, thus making the people spend less time commuting to work. So, taxing does great help to everyone.

    On the other hand, some people hold the view that taxation reduces their salary, making them saving less money they earn. For instance, my mother, a normal worker, would give up ten percents of her salary in taxation, which indeed reduces the income in the short run. But we all need to think about the question in the long term. As I say in the last paragraph, the money from taxation does lots of benefits in an invisible way, which maybe has more value than the money that taxpayers pay.

    In conclusion, we should be willing to pay taxes to the state and then make our world better.

    Taxing is in a high proportion in incomes of government. Some believed that the money they earned should be kept for their own and not be given to the government for tax. Personally, I am not on board with this view due to the following evidences.
