You probably have heard the phrase "The only certain things are death and taxes" or something along those lines. Taxes are put by governments and many individuals as the paramount duty of all citizens, and in order to do that, people supposedly must comply with every regulation put forward by revenue agencies, including the fact that they have to give away very private information.

Taxes are not your paramount duty; your first duty is towards the survival of your family, and if that means keeping things away from the tax harvest, so be it. I am not saying that you should evade taxes because that will put you in the land of the illegal, but if you can elude them legally, fair enough: Why should you pay more if you can pay less for the same? After all, we do that every day when we shop around, but there is yet another reason, which is to guarantee that in the event of persecution, you will keep the advantage of secrecy. If you play by the rules and someone doesn't like the fact, well, he can have the rules changed by asking the lawmakers. It is not up to you to make him feel happy.

Based on my family history I can tell you that if you give away all there is to know about you, you might end up paying taxes, and ostensibly dead, for those members of my family in question were Jews living in Warsaw, in 1939, and that their revenue information was used by the Nazis to catch and kill them, almost to the last. Certainly, the Polish Republic didn't collect that information to kill them but others used it to do so. Thus, there is absolutely no guarantee that the information you are giving away right now because the law demands you to do so would not be used against you in the future. Hence, the less others - including the state - know about you and your pockets, the better, for the sake of your survival. If the government says that you should give away that info, the point is that they are asking too much.

So, while indeed there is a duty of every citizen towards its country, there are things that it cannot ask, even if they are meant to be legal. You might say that your country might even require you to die for it and that you subscribe to that, and I commend your enthusiasm, but what gives your country the right to put your family in such a situation? Why would a sane country ask you to risk the lives of your spouse and children?

That is what happens when you give away certain information to the taxman, and my point is that it shouldn't be so. There are things, including your private accounts and money issues, that should be left private for your sake and the sake of others around you.

If someone says that in a democratic, well-established nation that will never happen, I would like to remind that Germany was a well-established nation with a democratic regime, and that her people elected Adolf Hitler as their legitimate leader. Technically it was a republic, not a dictatorship that invaded Poland in 1939.

And indeed, your country, your government, might never have bad intentions towards you, but what could happen if someone steals that information from your revenue agency? What if the country gets invaded like Poland in 1939?

Some things must be kept secret, no matter what the taxman thinks, and if you still don't think so, please read the story of my grat grandfather .

After reading that you can come back and tell me if you still think that you should give away all your private infor to your government. And by the way, if you fear that the state will not get enough money if people would be allowed to keep more information secret, one thing you can do is to ask your government to spend less, be more efficient, less corrupt and hence, require less money from the people.
