Many people think that tax evasion is a good thing. They think that if they can find a way out of paying so much money to the government then it is great. It can seem like that sometimes when you look at the fact that the high earners have to support the low earners. It does seem unfair on that basis.
It is worth remembering that you can get in to trouble if you do not pay the amount of tax that you should. You can be fined or even sent to prison and so you need to make sure that if you do want to avoid paying tax, you find a legal way to do so.
If you have to pay really high amounts of tax, you might be even more tempted to think like this. You might think that it is not fair and that you should not have to pay it. You might want to try to think of ways to get around paying it. There are things that big earners do to get around it, but it can be worth talking to an accountant about it. However, not all big earners manage to not pay much tax.
It is worth thinking about the moral side of it. Although it does seem like there are some people who pay no tax ever, because they are always on benefits, it is worth thinking about the benefits of taxation. The state gives us a lot and without them charging us tax, we would not get that. It is also worth thinking about the fact that the money that is given to people in benefits is spend mainly in the UK. That injection of money in to the economy is helping the business that you own or work for and keeping you on the salary that you are on. You are a lot better off than they are, despite the fact that you pay so much out in tax.
Also think about the only sure fire way to avoid paying income tax. That is to earn nothing and live on benefits or earn less than the minimum amount to pay tax. This would not be a nice life. Trying to manage on a tiny amount of money and having no self esteem because you have no job. Being bored all day stuck at home and not being able to afford to go out and have fun. I would rather pay tax than have a life like this, wouldn’t you?
