Why The Taxes Are So High In Canada


Every government gets the budget from the taxes, and those taxes are
collected from people who live in the country and enjoy the benefit and welfare
that provided by the government. Therefore, every citizen in every country has
to pay taxes, no matter what products or services they purchase. Some
countries have heavy taxation, such as Swiss, Japan, and Canada. People always
complain about heavy taxation, especially when the one who live in heavy
taxation place. A government can tax its citizens directly and it can tax the
property they own. There are many kinds of taxes, for example, personal income
tax, foreign income tax, property tax, good and service tax, and business tax .
.etc. However, people have to look thing on the other side, when they
complained about heavy taxation. Most of heavy taxation countries have a better
welfare system than others, like Swiss and Canada. There are so many welfare in
Canada, and the residents of Canada have to pay higher taxes to government than
any other countries. Then government can find the way to balance the high
budget.

First, Canadian government provides unemployment insurance to all
Canadian. This welfare is very important for every one, especially when people
lose the job and have to live on. They can get the pay-cheque from government
until they find the job. Every-time, people get the job, they have to pay 5% of
their salary for unemployment insurance. Unemployment insurance provide a good
working condition for every worker. Also, it help unemployment people to find
the second job easier.

Second, senior pension and child tax benefits. Senior people and
children can not work and most parents have over two or three children in the
family. It would be very hard for parents to raise more than two children.
Canadian government cares about senior people and children very much. Children
and senior people get the pay-cheque every month. It can help the parents to
raise the children easier and provide a better living condition for children.
It also has same effect on the senior people. Therefore, this is reason that
"why the taxes are so high in Canada."

Third, Canada have the soundest medical plan for every Canadian in the
world. People do not pay any money, when they go to see a doctor or hospital.
People only pay small amount of money every year to the government, and that
amount is depended on how much income they made on the job. Once people have
the care card, they can go to see a doctor or hospital any time, when there is
any illness or disease. Therefore, this is the reason "why the taxes are so
high in Canada."

Fourth, education system is also one of Canadian benefit. Children who
under age 19, can go to school without pay any school fee. Canadian basic
education is from kindergarten up to grad 12. It means every child has go to
school and finish his/her high school by law. Therefor, this is the reason "why
the taxes are so high in Canada."

Fifth, Canadian government has spend lots of money on public
transportation and constructs. People are the beneficiary from those constructs.
For example, national park, public library, public transit, police service,
community center, and disability constructs.. etc. Therefor, Canadian have to
pay higher taxes to balance the budget.

All of above are the reasons why the taxes are so high in Canada. There
are still a lot of benefits and welfare that did not list out, such as spouse
allowance, widowed spouse\'s allowance, disability benefit, spouse benefit,
social assistance, and veterans benefit. Every one wants to have as many
benefits and welfare as they can, then they also have to pay as much taxes as
they have to. Because no such thing as free lunch in this world.
