    Taxation is a process of tax imposing on citizens who earn taxable income. Tax is the sum of money which an individual also known as taxpayer has to pay to a state or any authorized body. This process involves dealing with direct taxes, assessment of taxes, filing return and providing advice on indirect taxes. Direct tax is the tax which is directly collected from the people e.g. property tax, wealth tax, income tax etc. whereas indirect tax comprises of taxes which are collected from the customers on the purchased goods or the services provided e.g. sales tax, VAT, customs duty, excise duty etc. Taxation is the government’s main source of revenue which is paid by the citizens and is used in financing projects for development projects in various sectors.
