Does Tax be a subject matter for philosophy or is it a mere technical issue for experts concerned about Tax’s output against Tax-fraud, -evasion or -avoidance?
Ideologies, whether pro or against taxation, try to convey such a drastic opposition between taxation and taxpayers. Counter to this, Tax appears to be a philosophical object because it leads us to take together the key concepts of our political thought. This book intends to show it into two complementary ways: on the one hand, it takes an historical perspective over the relation between justifications of Tax and the techniques of taxation; on the other hand, it tries to consider the possible evolutions of the frames of taxation.
