My answer to this sensitive/ pertinent question is yes and no. Yes in countries where accountability is the watch word, because the revenue from taxes are utilized for infrastructures and provision of social amenities to the citizens. No in countries with high corruption index, typical examples are the third world and some developing nations. The fund realized from taxes are embezzled by few government officials and no questions asked.
