Tax terror! (with video)

As the country has adopted federalism, the concept of the local government has emerged. Based on the concept, local governments have been formed after the election. As the local governments have to generate the revenue source, they have started imposing unnecessary taxation. Even in some area, the street vendors, agro traders and livestock traders are compelled to pay tax to the local governments. Taxation has started to arouse fear among people for local governments and provincial governments have started to impose additional taxes on almost everything they see fit. Double taxation, hefty rise in tax and fees, and imposition of new taxes—even those not envisioned by the constitution—have emerged as new challenges. This has created a strong impression that parties are adding tax burdens to people for their luxury. This tendency will be dangerous not only for political career of leaders but also for the health and future of federal system.
