1. Money paid to the government for the privilege to live in that state or administrative distribution. Typically, taxes are a portion of one's income which approaches 100% as one's income increases; however, the rich often find ways to cheat on their taxes. There are different types of taxes, as well, depending on how one makes and spends money. Many neoliberals claim taxes are immoral, even though the Bible itself requires a tithe of a flat 10% and a poll tax of one half-sheqel; I'd like to see these people live starting out with a debt ten times what they currently make and not be allowed to earn income.
2. To test.
1. "Most people don't like paying taxes."
2. "This is really taxing my patience."
