No I do not
Stop wasting tax money and stop stealing everything in sight and you won't have a tax problem. This will just cause more companies to leave SA. It will have the opposite effect of what you are trying to do.
No I do not
The goverment must start at themself tp cut there salary bill and cut their cost and expensives and stop looking at the private sector and public to bail them out because they overspend. Less ministers less empolyees for the goverment.
No I do not
Unfortunately our current government do not use tax money appropriately.
No I do not
We are already taxed at every turn. Every opportunity the government gets, they force the citizens to pay more tax, but the citizens never end up any better off.
Yes I do
Tax avoidance is a conduct against the corporate governance. If changes to curb it can be implemented let it be. Yes , I do feel drained by the Tax System, it leaves me with less disposable income than I need, and that cripples my individual growth. Yes I do feel that govt is not strict enough with people who are misusing public funds, they belong to jail! I think Govt is faced with two major problems: 1) Big corruption - which govt must deal with 2) Social distributions to large numbers - I do not know if govt has control over this. Prior democracy, the large population of the country was not getting these distributions - and now every qualifying individual must get them, so the large number. Govt pension (My grand parents used to get it quarterly, now every month people must get the money, they don't eat quarterly but everyday) Electricity & Water, we never had in rural areas yet we all needed and we all paid taxes, and now the govt is trying to correct all this mess, therefore we tax payers will be drained by taxes. And I do not believe that we should have a problem no w that everybody is getting what is their right, because we did not have a problem when a small number was getting before, and that was not right. It is costing us ALL to do the right thing now to the large number of the country, and it costed us ALL before to do it to the small number.
