    Explanation
    The correct answer is "on" because when talking about tax, we use the preposition "on" to indicate the subject or object that is being taxed. For example, we say "tax on income" or "tax on goods and services." Using "of" or "for" would not accurately convey the relationship between tax and the subject or object being taxed.
