Two things that are certain in life are death and taxes; we often hear. Do you think it is justified for governments to levy taxes? Why or why not? What experiences (good or bad) do you (or someone you know) have with IRS (or any other taxing authority)? What actions do you (or would you) take to reduce your taxes? Both Mr. Jones and Mrs. Green earned $50,000 gross in 2007. Yet, Mr. Jones owed IRS $600 on his tax return while the IRS owed Mrs. Green $600 on her tax return. What do you think were the possible reasons for the difference in the results? Explain.
