Why do we pay taxes? Everyone pays taxes in one form or another- mostly income and sales taxes. But why do we pay these taxes?
There are many services offered to citizens that could not be managed effectively under any other system.
The federal government uses your tax dollars to support Social Security, health care, national defense and social services such as food stamps and housing.
Services provided by taxes in South Carolina are public schools, safe highways, health care, prisons and social services for low-income citizens. The city or county where you live provides water and garbage service, police and fire protection and also contributes to public schools.
I believe in paying taxes because it helps people.
