I think SL people would pay taxes gladly if they know their tax money is used correctly. But because of how the gov manages people's tax money, SL people hesitate to pay the taxes.People need to pay tax to run a country efficiently. The problem in Sri Lanka is nobody wants to pay tax but they want all the social benefits. Just look at the tax rate in Australia, income is calculated from all sources including bank interest. There is also a Medicare levy of 2% of your taxable income.
