I.R.D. Interview

Could you ever imagine living in a world where people don’t pay their taxes? Some people do! Why? They don’t know what the government spends the money on and only want to keep it for themselves.  
But did you know that if we all did that then the world would be a more empty place. What am I talking about? Well, I mean there would be no Hospitals, Dentist, Schools etc...

Do you know where the taxes money goes to? The taxes money supports things like Student loans and like I just said Hospitals, Dentist, Schools and did you know even the police. Did you know that without the police the world would be a dangerous place.. The environment wouldn’t be healthy and most of all it wouldn’t be safe.

You know without the taxes we pay schools wouldn’t have exsisted. I know right!!!

Taxes come from money from peoples wages or income and also G.S.T ( Good Service Taxes ).  

GST is when you go shopping you are giving some of that money to the government. In the weekends me and my family went out to get some fish and chips. It cost $10.  I now know that some of the money goes to the government and it is called GST.

Could you see now that the taxes money is actually helpful. So everyone out there pay your taxes!!


  1. Thank goodness we pay our taxes Quasia! Next time I put the rubbish out I shall remember who says for them!! Have a great time in Wellington.

  2. Hi Quasia, I love your story about getting fish and chips and knowing that you were paying some GST. And you are so right - government can now use that money for schools, the police, and hopsitals. Thank you for coming to see us last week. I hope you had a great day. Naomi Ferguson (IRD)
