Burden Of Tax Falls On Liberians

Many who shared my view feel that there are no redlines left for terrorists to cross. This is a psychological war and succumbing to the strategies would give the enemies superior hand. Let stand up with one voice and call to win this war!

The Editor, 

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!
