The primary function of every government is to make provision for its citizens in terms of infrastructural facilities. The provision of this enormous work cannot be carried out adequately by the government due to its limited resources therefore, there is the imposition of tax on all citizens, companies to augment government financial position. Government have always enacted various tax laws and reformed to stand the taste of time.
