Burden Of Tax Falls On Liberians
So who do you think was going to pay these surcharges (taxes) on Orange Liberia?? If you say the customers, you’re a genius! (Re “Orange Liberia Reportedly Preparing to Fight Recent Supreme Court Ruling..)
When the government (LTA) levies a surcharge (tax) on a corporation (Orange Liberia), the corporation is more like a tax collector than a taxpayer. The burden of the tax ultimately falls on people–the owners, customers or workers of the corporation.
In this case, it’s the customers (Liberian people) that are getting screwed by their government! But the point to remember is that corporations are mere collector of taxes!
