Taxes on residential income homes cannot continue to increase. The GDP doesn’t increase with that % so you cannot expect your few tax paying citizens to keep on paying more and more every year for less service.
If you would add up the effective tax rate for a salary income earner in the 51% bracket and add Vat, residential taxes, paying own security, private schooling and medical, paying e-tolls, etc it is very high and we don’t use the gov funded systems and what do we get in return for it? Poor judicial system, potholes, seeing corruption at the highest levels but nobody is in jail.
Think about the pensioners that have been living in the same house for years and pension hardly increases due to political risk increases and rating agencies moving some SA companies closer to junk status due to gov risk and trying to comply with gov legislation, these pensioners can not afford these % increases.

The beloved country is on fire and instead of catching those who started the fires and make them repay what they stole the government read ANC wants to take the easy way out by slapping us with more taxes. So I say no to this!!

It is time to CUT taxes. All free people should move to the Western Cape and declare Independence from this corruption.
