Taxes

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. Many Canadians carry a certain amount of debt as part of their overall financial picture. But with proper financial planning, you’ll be able to determine how much money you’ll need for monthly expenditures, future savings, and be able to manage debt effectively. Part of your financial planning should include paying taxes - which are financial contributions required yearly by the government. The amount of tax that a person must pay varies based on the type of tax (income, property, etc.) Financial experts have differing views on how much money you should keep in savings, how and where to invest your money, and how best to manage your monthly and yearly costs. Do you have questions about your current financial tax requirements? Would you like guidance or information from a financial expert for yourself, a friend or loved one? Are you looking for resources within your community to help you file your taxes? Kinjunxion is here to help with sources of support and information.

For Good and Evil

The Impact of Taxes on the Course of Civilization

The very word taxes sends shivers up spines. Yet, very few realize the tremendous impact that taxation has had on civilization. Charles Adams changes that in this fascinating history. Taxation, says Mr. Adams, has been a catalyst of history, the powerful influence if not the direct cause of many of the famous events of history that have marched across the world's stage as empires collided and battled for the right to tax the loser. For Good and Evil is the first book to examine how taxation has been a key factor in world events. Like the Rosetta Stone - a tax document - the book sheds fresh light onto much of history. Did you know that biblical Israel split after Solomon's death because his son refused to cut taxes? That Rome rose to greatness due to a liberal tax regime but declined under corrupt and inefficient ones? That in Britain, Lady Godiva made her famous ride as a tax protest? That in Switzerland William Tell shot the apple off his son's head as punishment for tax resistance? Or that Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the Civil War were fired, was a Customs House? Combining facts with thought-provoking comment he frequently draws parallels between tax events of the past and those of the present. Finding fault with the way Western civilization is taxed, Adams provides ideas for curing those faults by using the valuable lessons that history has taught. The special value of this refreshing new look at history lies in the lessons to be drawn by all thinking taxpayers. "Taxes are the fuel that makes civilization run, but how we tax and spend determines to a large extent whether we are prosperous or poor, free or enslaved, and most importantly, good or evil." Once you read For Good and Evil, you'll never feel the same about taxes!
