If social justice is the secret recipe for stable countries and nations, fair taxation is the cornerstone of that social justice and the secret of civilization making. Some people believe, and rightly so, that taxes are the price they pay for civilization making. Therefore, the stability of the Egyptian society, particularly in this politically, economically and socially charged period following two revolutions that called for “bread, freedom, and social justice,” has become more urgent than ever. This requires revisiting the tax system in order to achieve social justice and income redistribution so that the Egyptian citizen restores his identity, and capitalists and the rich bear the burden of financing sustainable development.
