Tabitha learns about taxes with Walburt
Tabitha does not understand why she has to pay taxes. Walburt is about to spill the truth T on Tabitha.
" If I am paying for taxes, why are there pot holes in the middle of the road?"
What Tabitha doesn't know is that our taxes go to more things than just pot holes.
Taxes also go to public education, financial aid, state and local police, social services, health care for the elderly, and the national defense.
There are also two kinds of taxes. Progressive taxes and Regressive taxes. Progressive taxes and taxes for the people who pay higher income. if you receive a higher income, you have to pay higher taxes.
Regressive taxes are the taxes where everyone pays the same fixed amount.
WOW! I did not know all that stuff! Thank you so much Walburt. Now I understand how taxes work and I am thankful for them.
