Gst – a major taxation reform in india
Tax is an important source of revenue for a Government. A Government can take care
of the welfare of its people by using the money collected through taxes. A tax is a mandatory
financial charge or some other type of levy imposed upon a tax payer by a Government or the
in order to fund various public expenditures.
Taxes consist of direct or indirect taxes. Most countries have a tax system in place to pay
for public/common/agreed national needs and government functions: some levy a flat
percentage rate of taxation on personal annual income, some on a scale based on annual
income amounts, and some countries impose almost no taxation at all, or a very low tax rate
for a certain area of taxation.
