Bloody Taxes!

Good morning, afternoon, evening everybody,

I'd like to provoke you with a subject on this page quite diferent from the previous ones.

It is not April yet, but we might get prepared to it.

If you had to draw a path making our last subjects connected to each other, which words would you write to make us follow it?

In which regard do you keep the payment of taxes?

Any special angle as a point of view on that?

If not this class, we'll soon have the chance to open our horizons about this topic too.

Federica: crystal clear ideas, Federica, no politicians have any like yours! 

Silvia: you're getting to the point. Less taxes, better services. No waste of money, time, energies, lives!

Possible connections with Europe, better with the European Union, refer to the fiscal system, so different from country to country, and the quality of services  too,  Shall we ask for a better union ruling? Better numbers then?

In the meantime, what might make the difference, might be working better, each one of us. Working well means building the future, for everybody, light ahead of us. Any single square meter, the one we live in, day by day, moment by moment. So simple to be respected as a principle, so simple to be shared, without waiting for someone else to start, but just doing it.

Behavior is more important than any words, makes all people acquire positive habits, able to spontaneously multiply themselves. 

Enjoy your English!

Anna - Coordinator

I don't like very much political arguments because I don't understand a lot about it, but in the spirit of our group, I searched other way to approach one argument like this. I searched the origin of the taxes, why the society needs taxes and also curiosity about these. and , thanks to the latest research I think we are lucky more than in the past!
what do you think about the beard tax?or the origin of the tax on the use of today's public baths? it is very interesting!

Excuse me, but the subject of the taxes doesn't enthuses me, and I'm not very well prepared about it, so I don't think I can say interesting things that we don't already know; we all want to pay less taxes with simpler procedures and we would like best services.
Bye Silvia

You're right, Anna.
But, how could we aspire to a real unit Europe if no other country has a tax evasion like ours?

To draw a path about taxes I would choose these words:
when were taxes born - why do we have to pay taxes - why are tax rates different form a country to the other - how could we do to fight tax evasion - do you think that our tax system is unfair.
We have to pay taxes because we need some services to live: we need medical care, public security, infrastructures, and so. But, if we want to pay lower tax rates, it’s necessary to improve the methods of credit recovery and fight tax evasion: if everyone pays the amount due, everyone will pay less.
