1. Q: What makes a good citizen.
To be a good citizen, you should pay income, taxes honestly, and on time, to federal, and local authorities.
This is a very important responsibility, because first, roughly 80 percent of federal government’s revenue come from individual income taxes, which is major recourse of social insurance programs.
Second, public education also relies on government’s tax income. For example, more than 90% of weston’s tax income are used for public education.
Last, a lot of social welfare, such as Food Stamps, House Assistance, and Child Nutrition Program, depend on government’s tax revenue.
Therefore, a good taxpayer must be a great citizen, since his/her tax is distributed into different government programs, which helps the country to build a better society.
