Do Your Business With A Peace Of Mind心安理得做事業
Why should we take a serious view when it comes to income tax filing and paying our taxes?
Have you ever considered this issue?
If you haven’t, please hear what Master Dai Hu has to say on this.
Why do we have to file and pay our tax dues?
1. The Buddha expounded on the Four Debts of Gratitude, and one of it refers to the kindness of the nation that one should repay.
2. There is no home without a nation, and when there is no home, there will be no us.
3. When we file our tax truthfully, we are exemplifying the trait of honesty.
You are born in this land and have utilised its resources to make your living. It is only right to contribute taxes to the nation. The tax rates in this country are one of the lowest in the world, and yet some people tried to evade taxes. Imagine if you are living in other countries with higher tax rates!
4. Besides honesty, it also involves the precept of not stealing. Karma is always prevalent.
No matter what we do, it is not a simple matter of me asking you to keep mum and no one will find out.
Our every action and thought in every moment from dusk till dawn are monitored by the gods. No one is free from this.
Even if you kept mum and did not blow the whistle on my misdeed, the karma is already in motion and no one can escape from its clutches. Our family members will also be implicated. Your merits will greatly diminish and soon enough, you will encounter many difficulties such as maintaining the livelihood of the family and many obstacles in doing business etc.
Why are all these straitened circumstances happening to your family?
Because you had intentionally evaded taxes, which is really an act of stealing, dishonesty and failure to repay the kindness of your country. Neither do you have the heart to share the weal and woe with your motherland.
Therefore, please think thrice about my words. If you have committed such misdeed previously, and you protest that no one had told you of the karmic consequences, you have no excuse now after reading this article. Please do not continue with your ignorance before things go awry in the future.
Wishing everyone a happy time reporting your tax timely and accurately. Go forth in peace to excel in your career, with no fear, and all will be well.
