From libraries and schools to roads and public parks, governments provide their citizens with a large number of important utilities and services. Such things are often expensive to build and maintain. Readers will discover why taxes are necessary to pay for the basic services they use everyday, how tax payments are calculated, and why people often disagree on how taxes should work.
