When tax is warranted

21 April 2017

Dear Editor,

Re: Resident fed up with rubbish antics 

Unfortunately this is an ongoing behavior that is not limited to Samoa. 

Whenever new laws that add financial burdens to people, the end results sometime is lawlessness.

People will try to circumvent the system to gain or avoid paying.

The government should consider this type of behavior when creating new laws that adds costs to everyday life.

I am not a big advocate of taxing people, but adding a 5 sene monthly tax to pay for garbage pick up can minimize this kind of behavior. 

There are certain services that a tax is warranted.
