The case for Tax Residency
The “only things certain in life,” it has been said, “are death and taxes.”
While death is certain, an inevitability we all have to accept. Taxes are not.
It need not be such a certainty.
Though it is something we have accepted as an inevitable fact, “a consequence of living in society”, we say to ourselves.
So the question comes, why is it believed?
Why have we believed taxes to be such a certainty in life, that it has been equated with ‘death’- the only true certainty?
Perhaps it’s because of the lack of questioning, the lack of curiosity that compels us to believe another, such that, when something is said, we believe without investigating ourselves?
So lets question.
Are taxes for certain?
