Tax

A fee charged ("levied") by a government on a product, income, or 

Activity

. If 

Tax

 is levied directly on personal or corporate income, then it is a direct tax. If 

Tax

 is levied on the price of a good or service, then it is called an indirect tax. The purpose of 

Taxation

 is to 

Finance

 government 

Expenditure

. One of the most important uses of taxes is to 

Finance

 public goods and services, such as street lighting and street cleaning. Since 

Public goods

 and services do not allow a non-payer to be excluded, or allow 

Exclusion

 by a 

Consumer

, there cannot be a 

Market

 in the good or service, and so they need to be provided by the government or a quasi-government 

Agency

, which tend to 

Finance

 themselves largely through taxes.
