India Tax Payer is an association of tax payers in India.
We work for reduced taxation and better services from the government.
Tax collection by the government has been growing phenomenally. While it is common knowledge to link tax collection to inflation and to GDP growth, it will come as a surprise to note that tax collection by the Government has been growing almost eight times faster than the GDP.
In the last thirty years, GDP of the nation has grown nine times between 1981 and 2011 whereas the tax collection by the Government has grown 72 times during the same period!
Taxes have been consistently growing up. New taxes added every time when there is a budget. And the budget season is round the corner. It is only right that we expect more taxes in one form or the other.
Are we ready for it? What is our stand in it?
Our voices need to be heard. Taxes cannot and should not be introduced at the will and pleasure of Government but when there is a proven need.
Unless there is a united voice of the tax payers, it is not going to be heard. Join this group and start raising your ideas and thoughts in the forum here. We will make sure every valid thought is publicly heard and read!
