How to use tax in a sentence?

  1. Ronald Reagan:

    Most tax revisions didn't improve the system, they made it more like Washington itself complicated, unfair, cluttered with gobbledygook and loopholes designed for those with the power and influence to hire high-priced legal and tax advisers.

  2. Lord Thomas Dewar:

    The only thing that hurts more than paying an income tax is not having to pay an income tax.

  3. Charles Krauthammer:

    I think this argument between him and the Wall Street Journal over what is essentially two percent of the rate, I think it's slightly overexaggerated. It's not going to make any difference in the real world if there's a one or two percent lower rate, and I think what's he's doing is trying to win votes with the sweetener of the child tax credit, there's nothing wrong with that. And it's true that a pudding has to have a theme, but a tax plan doesn't have to have a theme. The theme here is that you're lowering the rate, particularly on the corporate side. You're lowering the tax on investment and return, capital gains, which is what everybody on the right has always said is the engine to drive growth. So, you've got very serious pro-growth elements in here, and you've got a sweetener for the child tax credit, that that's a rejection of Reaganism I find slightly over the top.

  4. Peter Barron:

    After a six-year audit we are paying the full amount of tax that HM Revenue & Customs agrees we should pay, including 130 million pounds in additional back tax, governments make tax law, the tax authorities independently enforce the law, and Google complies with the law.

  5. Jonathan Swift:

    Censure is the tax a man pays to the public for being eminent.
