Advantages and disadvantages of taxation to redistribute income Taxation is a tool commonly used by government as a means of redistributing income amongst its citizens. In some instances, taxation can have a positive effect on the redistribution of income, other times, it can do more harm than good. Taxation helps greatly in the redistribution of income as it gives the government funds which they can use to fund public services. In countries that have solid taxation systems, revenue from taxes will be great. The more revenue there is coming from taxes, the more money there will be left over for the government...

...saved towards their future; saving money is always the right choice. If I were to go a step further to state that James was self-employed with very few workers, would be the retirement options available to him then? It is said that there are H.R. 10 plans, also called Keogh plans that are available for persons who are indeed self-employed. If James factors in his H.R.10 contributions for employees, these would be deductible for AGI on a Schedule C, and for himself, as a for AGI deductible on page 1 of the 1040 form. These would generally have the same contribution and benefit limits as other qualified plans, however there must be the consideration that, earned income must be reduced by two amounts. According to Prentice Hall’s Federal Taxation, these would be the 50% deduction for self-employment taxes and, the Keogh contribution itself. It states that “Since the contribution is based on earned income after contribution, the 25% contribution percentage must be reduced to 20 %”; there is indeed a maximum of $245,000 of earned income that is taken into account for every individual. Other options would be Simplified Employee Pensions and Simple Retirement Plans. Simplified Employee Pension plans are said to have reduced administrative complexity than the H.R. 10 plans, and contributions are made to the IRAs of one’s employees. Here, James would need to ensure that contributions are non-discriminatory, and would be able to receive an immediate tax deduction for......

A Thesis "Definition Reviewer"

...through piles of scribbles to find the right pages is a tried and tested way to review terms and their definitions. Printed commercial examination reviewers are available in bookstores. In Lee Morgan’s article “What are the Limitations of Print Media,” he touches on two issues printed material face: they are unchangeable and no motion. It is particularly significant for printed reviewers available in bookstores because while memory involves an “organism’s ability to store information about events in a retrievable format,” and the re-use of printed reviewers promotes memory retrieval, not learning, because printed reviewers are static. Another significant finding is that the critical learning stages are those before the age of eight for two reasons: first, children under the age of eight learn 200% faster than adults, and second, thinking patterns become habitual after age eight, and difficult to change. Information Technology has influenced society in ways that have made assessing information so much easier (Hodge, 2010). Computers help people perform tasks easier and faster. Technology also has a systematic and organized way of keeping data records, computing, and accomplishing a lot of transactions and reports It is after the consideration of all these that the researchers came upon the idea of developing a definition reviewer Software, designed for first to third grade students of Master’s Vineyard Academy(MVA). They further considered that in learning, abstract......

...(shareholders). 3. LIABILITY – Ordinary Partnerships are subject to unlimited liability, which means that each of the partners shares the liability and financial risks of the business. Which can be off putting for some people. This can be countered by the formation of a limited liability partnership, which benefits from the advantages of limited liability granted to limited companies, while still taking advantage of the flexibility of the partnership model. 4. TAXATION – One of the major disadvantages of partnership, taxation laws mean that partners must pay tax in the same way as sole traders, each submitting a Self Assessment tax return each year. They are also required to register as self employed with HM Revenue & Customs. The current laws mean that if the partnerships (and the partners) bring in more than a certain level, then they are subject to greater levels of personal taxation than they would be in a limited company. This means that in most cases setting up a limited company would be more beneficial as the taxation laws are more favourable (see our article on the 5.

...E-commerce Taxation: Towards its Legalization Have you ever wanted to buy something with just one click without having to pay much as the usual? With the easy access and affordable prices, online purchasing has become the most convenient way of shopping for most teenagers. The popularity of the Internet particularly Facebook, Instagram and other social networking sites attracted many retailers to invest their businesses online without having to pay taxes like any other retailers do. By this, e-commerce continues to grow with the advancement in technology as it overshadows the traditional way of running a business by the insignificant purpose of the physical interaction between the buyer and the seller. E-commerce in itself is classified into three types: business-to-consumer in which online stores sell products to final consumers; consumer-to-consumer just in the case of eBay and Amazon and; business-to-business which involves job recruiting, online advertising, credit, sales, and the like (U, 2002, p.6). With the emergence of e-commerce, brick and mortar stores are slowly starting to degrade, thus alarming the government on the collection of lesser tax since the law regarding electronic commerce taxation is still being debated. This income generating phenomenon has been an attractive target to the government to cope with its huge loss on tax collection. So why pay tax? Richard Carlson (2002) once said, “At tax time, it helps to remember that if your tax obligation has......

... TAXATION. Name: Institution: A) Effect of Taxation. Taxation is a system of levying taxes on various types of earnings, income and/or purchases. It is an essential part of a modern state whereby the government obtains revenue, which is used for provision of education, health care and living benefits to a range of its citizens (Sullivan 2003).  The UK tax system has several incompatible objectives, for instance redistribution of income and wealth creation (through tax breaks). The government must take into account the issue of fairness in taxation, if it is to provide an acceptable tax system in the United Kingdom (Wales 2008). The social function of taxation is to ensure that there is wealth redistribution, in order to create a fair and harmonious society. According to Adam Smith, fairness in taxation promotes morality and equity in free market economics (Sullivan 2003). Fairness in taxation ensures that market failures are tackled. A fair tax regime ensures that the revenue collected is shared equitably and appropriately through judicious expenditure. According to Adam Smith, equity in taxation implies that the taxpayers pay taxes that are proportionate to their income, while the allocation of government resources does not adhere to this proportionality. A fair tax has the following four attributes: equity, efficiency, certainty and convenience. Equity ensures that the tax has a reasonable impact on the taxpayers. Equity is......

...Case exercise: Real Estate Taxation in Denmark Question 1. 1. What are the main factors about a real estate that is influencing the sales price? Answer: The factors that I think are influencing the the sales price are: * Location (Copenhagen or Vejen) * Size of the building and land * Condition of the building * Population growth (will effect the demand) * Interest (if low interest then more people can afford to buy ergo more demand) * Economic situation in the country is there ongoing recession or bubble growth * Sales situation (Is it a person that is in a rush to liquidate the real estate or is it a person that will wait for the best price, is it a sale between two people that know each other well, is it a bank selling a foreclosure property) * Unemployment rate * Size of the market (number of sales in a given time and location) * Market price (lets face it sometimes the market price is not based on any locical idea) 2.
