How is Government Funded?Top
Governments of all levels have always been funded by its citizens. This principal has held true since the formation of the very first
government, thousands of years ago. Unlike income-producing businesses that can become self-sufficient, governments are service based and
have to charge for those services in order to continue to provide them to it's citizens. Governments are funded by the citizens by way of
tax levies, fines, fees, tariffs, duties, etc.
Where do my Tax Dollars Go?Top
