English

Yes, maybe it is the right abbreviation for him. In a country where the taxes are being activated. He gave an opposite example of a good officer. In a country, where there are some mottos like  “wise man obeys tax”, “tax for development”.

It was so corrupt until  the tax department can be imaged  as a center of corruption. The thick accounts of tax officers often published in mass media.

We as citizen are being told to obey and pay taxes, but where the money that we payed ? Whether the money was channeled to the proper place ? We don’t sure about it. If they say it was for development, in fact  the infrastructures in my city are still the same.

The Beatles also ever criticized about the tax. It can be heard  in this song below.

Bahasa Indonesia

Ya, mungkin itu adalah singkatan yang tepat untuknya. Di negara dimana pajak sedang digalakkan. Ia mencontohkan kebalikan dari seorang pejabat yang baik. Di suatu negara, dimana ada beberapa motto seperti “orang bijak taat pajak”, “pajak untukpembangunan”.

Begitu korupnya sampai departemen pajak dapat dicitrakan sebagai pusat korupsi. Rekening-rekening gendut petugas pajak sering dipublikasikan di media massa.

Kita sebagai warga negara diberitahu untuk taat dan membayar pajak, tetapi kemana uang yang kita bayar ? Apakah uang itu sudah disalurkan ke tempat yang tepat ? Kita tidak yakin tentang hal itu. Jika mereka mengatakan itu untuk pembangunan, pada kenyataannya infrastruktur di kota saya masih tetap sama.

The Beatles juga pernah mengkritik tentang pajak. Hal ini dapat didengar dalam lagu di bawah ini.

Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don’t take it all
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for
If you don’t want to pay some more
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
And you’re working for no one but me.

Note : Be thankful, they still don’t tax the air that we breathe.  Bersyukurlah, mereka masih belum memajaki udara yang kita hirup
