Topic #284 – What is the best way to tax people

In 1976 when I took the Board for Certified Public Accountant, my taxation subject helped my average grade climbed just barely to pass the passing grade of 75%. Accounting Practical I and II were very hard. To pass the Board you have to have a grade for any subject not lower that 65%, but should not be lower than 75% on the total average. I got 77.3% something. My Taxation was high and it really helped elevate my total grade for I got 65% in Practical II.

What is Taxation? In simple term it is to impose a charge on something.   A country will not survive without taxation. We have to give something in return for what we enjoy or earned. To keep the economy going. To keep nature going.

In the old days, Jesus Christ understood the significance of taxation when he commanded his apostles to give what is due to Caesar.

 Matthew 22:21King James Version (KJV)

 21They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

During that time Caesar Augustus made a decree that the whole world will be taxed.

Luke 2

 1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that the entire world should be taxed.

And Joseph traveled with Mary who was heavy with a child to be taxed.

Luke 2:5

King James Version (KJV)

 5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

Levi who received the office of the priesthood has a commandment to take tithes according to the law;  was also paying tithes while still in the loins  of Abraham.

Hebrews 7:5

King James Version (KJV)

 5And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:

Hebrews 7:9

King James Version (KJV)

 9And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.

In the end times, for we are definitely in the end times, isn’t it a glory to God to follow what the people of God  did before us, to pay our dues to the people who governed us?

Pay your taxes. Your money will go the construction of the roads and bridges, to build infrastructures, hospitals and etc.

 Do we need  to be reminded of this?

In the US, the more you have the more you pay, this is  the law of equation and the law of God.

What is the best way to tax people?   Educate them the true religion.
