Tax is collected because the government needs to pay for all the services it provides the people of the country. It does that by charging people and business tax on the income that they earn each year. In South Africa the South African Revenue Services ("SARS") is responsible for collecting tax and gives it to the department of treasury who then pays for all the country's expenses and services. People and companies have to give a form to SARS showing how much income they earned and then pay over the correct tax.
