Send some of your money to Tiafau

Re: Give to Caesar what belongs to him

Absolutely yes they should pay taxes. I know they call it donations but those donations are also income for the faifeau and a portion of that income should be sent to Tiafau for the development of the country.

The cynic in me also says that too many people view the ministry as a career rather than a calling these days.

Also, with all due respect to the Head of State, the father of the nation, he too should pay tax as the chief public servant in the land and also the highest paid.

It is not his fault that he has not paid taxes though.

Previous governments, presumably right back to independence have decided that the Head of State should not have to pay tax.
