    Why is direct taxation considered a better form of taxation?

    • A.

      Direct taxation fetches more revenue

    • B.

      Direct Taxation gives permission for taxation in accordance with the means

    • C.

      Direct taxation has hefty tax compliance

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Direct Taxation gives permission for taxation in accordance with the means
    Explanation
    Direct taxation is considered a better form of taxation because it allows for taxation based on an individual's or entity's ability to pay, which is determined by their means. This ensures that those who have higher incomes or more wealth contribute a larger share of their resources towards taxes, while those with lower incomes or less wealth are taxed proportionally less. This progressive nature of direct taxation promotes fairness and reduces income inequality. Additionally, direct taxation has the potential to generate more revenue compared to other forms of taxation, making it an effective tool for government funding.
