The table below shows the tax payments of three income earners in a year. Use the Information in the table to answer the questions that follows: 

  Income          Earners           Income           Base            Tax paymentsX(N)             Y(N)
          Mr. Okafor          Alhaji Tanko   Mr. Kolawole          10,000           15,000           30,0001,000               800 1,500            1,300 3,000            1,500

Determine the percentage rate of taxation paid by

  1. Mr Okafor in column X and Y
  2. Kolawole in column X and Y
  3. Alhaji Tanko in column Y

(b).       i.                        Identify the systems of taxation employed in columns X and Y

                      ii.             Which of the income earners has the least burden under column Y?

  • i.    if the government increases its rate of taxation to 20% flat rate, how much revenue     will be generated from the payees?

ii.   At 20% flat rate of taxation, calculate the disposable income of Mr. Okafor, Alhaji Tanko and Mr. Kolawole.

Solution to approach to taxation

  1. Tax rate = Tax payment       x          100

       Tax base                        1

  1. For Mr. Okafor

=   1,000      x          100

10,000         1

= 10% for X

=   800         x          100

     1   

10,000

=   8% for Y

  1. For Mr. Kolawole

=            3,000   x    100

           30,000         1

=         10% for X

=         1,500    x     100

           30,000   1

=         5% for Y

           (b)(i) The systems of taxation employed in column X and Y are:

           Column X = Proportional systems of taxation

           Column Y = Regressive system of taxation

                       (ii)        The person with the last burden is M. Kolawole with 5% tax rate.

           (c) (i)  Mr. Okafor = 20   x 10,000   = N2,000.00

                                             100        1

           Alhaji Tanko = 20  x 15,000  = N3,000.00

                                  100       1

           Mr. Kolawole 20  x 30,000  = N6,000.00

                                  100       1

Total revenue = N2,000 + 63,000 + N6,000

= N11,000

OR

20% of total income

=20  x (N10,000 + N15,000 + N30,000)

   100                                      1

= Disposable Income = Income – Taxation or Tax base – Tax Paid

Mr. Okafor     = 10,000 – N2, 000 = N8, 000

Alhaji Tanko   = 15,000 – 3,000   = N12, 000

Mr. Kolawole  = 30,000 – 6,000   = N24,000
