I want to ask if there is any benefit of paying direct taxes to the goverment? I have to pay direct tax (at source) deducted from my income by employer. Also, like everyone, I have to pay indirect tax for amenties of life like food, clothing, petrol/cng, ptcl phone, mobile phone, internet...
Does my payment of direct tax over last couple years entitle me to any benefits over non tax payer? Free/discounted medical, job/social security, etc? Can I get any waiver/refund from indirect taxation since I already pay direct tax?
Recently, newspaper yet again told how a large number of illustrios parlimentarians don't have ntn and so don't pay any direct taxes despite getting so many perks and previliges from tax payer money which is disheartning abuse of tax payer money.
What is the justification of paying so many taxes if there is no benefit for me over a non tax payer?
