Task：People believe that they should be able to keep all the money they earn and should not pay tax to the state. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
In comtemporary society, what we earn is not always equal to what we finally have simply due to the tax payment. As long as we make money, a certan proportion of our income should be spent in tax. People, who are somewhat unsatisfied with this rule suggest that it is unnecessary while I personally disagree.
Admittely, it seems to be a little unfair considering that we cannot own all the money we earn. However, for the benefit of an individual in the long term, paying tax is reasonable and worthwhile. Firstly, it is obvious that the government needs money to maintain public service which is necessary for every single citizen. Expenditure on constructing public facilites such as museum, transportation depends on tax. Moreover, a large amount of tax is invested in promoting medical insurance system. Sooner or later, tax payers will benefit from it and appreciate the fact that it costs them so little on medical bills.
On the other hand, tax payment is beneficial to the society as a whole. As we know, tax rate varies depending on how much a person earns. Briefly speaking, those who are more wealthy have to pay more tax to the state. Therefore, the gap between the rich and the poor is minimized to some extent. By virtue of imposing tax,the society can be stablized as there will be relatively less crimes commiteed by people in lower social-economic status.
To sum up, it is my belief that paying tax is the right act both for the welfare of an individual and the society. Thus, every citizen should be commiteed in tax payment according to related law.
