    Depends on what kind of taxes you're talking about.

    But in general, the government decides to tax certain things, and you are obliged to pay the tax required.

    The government uses the money to run itself and pay for government subsidized infrastructure and services.

    You pay in, as per legislated/mandated; and the government spends the money on its projects for the common good.

    taxes don't work it's a broken system that big companies exploit by using offshore bank accounts.

    You earn money and the government takes some of it so they can pay for things they want to do.
