Just paid the provisional taxes. I don’t know about you, but for me paying taxes feels rather unsatisfying. You don’t have any control on what happens with the money you have to pay. You get a bill, and that’s it.

Why isn’t it possible to decide yourself what should happen with your money? One idea is to allow the taxpayer to select the project(s) he wants to support with the taxes he pays. The first step to realize this idea could be that the taxpayer can define the distribution of what he pays, e.g. 30% for education, 30% for public transportation, 40% for social security.

So you would no longer have to help finance things you don’t like (e.g. the army if you are an opponent of it). What do you think about this idea?
