      Equity: Taxation involves compulsion. By the end of the 20th century, however, many governments recognized that attempts to use tax policy to reduce inequity can create costly distortions, prompting a partial return to the view that taxes should not be used for redistributive purposes. The text book is user friendly and consists of clearly structured chapters grouped under helpful headings flowcharts, diagrams and tables, end of chapter practice questions, and case summaries. Nevertheless, the payments are commonly compulsory, and the link to benefits is sometimes quite weak. If the taxpayer fails to request a change of method of accounting then, according to section fthe taxpayer does so at his or her own peril by exposure to penalties. In fact, different writers have formulated the different theories, at different times, relating to the equitable distribution of the burden of taxation among the people.

      Neutrality: Prima facie, a tax system should be designed to be neutral, i. The most important source of government revenue is tax. One clear example is road tax. Everyone buys goods and services and whatever payment one makes include an indirect tax, hence,this tax cannot be evaded. Historically there was common agreement that income is the best indicator of ability to pay.

      This concept has been translated into the ability to pay principle, according to which those most able to pay should pay the maximum amount of taxes. Another may have unproductive wealth i. Plan 3 is quite regressive: since tax payments rise more slowly than income, the tax rate for richer families is lower than that for poorer families. Equity: The distribution of burden of the tax must conform with the pattern of income distribution regarded as the optimum by the consensus of opinion in a modern society.

Principles and methods of taxation book

Thus, if the government spends Rs 50 for providing a particular service to A, he should pay a tax of Rs One useful way to view the purpose of taxation, attributable to American economist Richard A.

For example, someone who has to travel 50km to work every day will pay more tax over the year than Principles and methods of taxation book who can walk, even though they may earn the same amount and use the same public services, etc From the first can be derived some leading views about what is fair in the distribution of tax burdens among taxpayers.

While the differences between book and tax accounting are no doubt confusing to many, it is entirely reasonable that there be considerable differences between the two practices. But difficulties may arise in measuring the aggregate sacrifice of the community owing to the difficulties in knowing the correct marginal utility of money, which itself is a subjective phenomenon only windfall gains should be taxed at a high rate since they involve least sacrifice.

According to Pigou, the burden of taxation is to be distributed among the people in such a way that the aggregate sacrifice of the community for paying taxes should be the least, i. Therefore, it is important for the tax system to be fair. There is hardly any controversy about this principle.

Principles of Taxation Law is the perfect tool to guide the reader from their initial exposure to the subject to a successful result in taxation law exams. Revenue adequacy—the tax system must produce sufficient revenue to pay for important national, state, and local priorities and to maintain fiscal stability.

This specific principle is also known as a flat tax rate. Horizontal equity is the notion that equally situated individuals should be taxed equally. This means that taxation should be determined by a person's ability to pay, and that wealthier people should pay more in taxes because they are able to do so.

By the end of the 20th century, however, many governments recognized that attempts to use tax policy to reduce inequity can create costly distortions, prompting a partial return to the view that taxes should not be used for redistributive purposes.

The taxpayer can adopt another method if the taxpayer files a tax return using that method for two consecutive years. However, progressivity in taxation is not necessary for vertical equity. For example, if two persons have the same amount of wealth, they are not equally well-off. What follows is a discussion of some of the leading principles that can shape decisions about taxation.

The tax system should not have hidden or complicated language that the average citizen cannot understand, and all costs should be upfront and transparent. All chapters have been thoroughly revised and include references to supplementary textbook online material for additional learning.

Stable and reliable public policies and programs require adequate and consistent sources of revenue. The ability-to-pay principle also is commonly interpreted as requiring that direct personal taxes have a progressive rate structure, although there is no way of demonstrating that any particular degree of progressivity is the right one.

The most suitable taxes from this standpoint are personal levies income, net worth, consumptionand inheritance taxes. Everyone buys goods and services and whatever payment one makes include an indirect tax, hence,this tax cannot be evaded.
