It is barely two weeks to the May 9 elections. For months, we have been hearing many promises from the presidential candidates, and it cannot be denied that one of the things that might win over a voter is a candidate’s take on tax reform. To be sure, tax reform is one of many aspects of governance that a president needs to consider, apart from fighting crime and corruption, defending sovereign territory, and growing the economy, to name a few. But what makes many of these initiatives possible is a well-managed treasury, funded by the taxes we pay. Therefore presidential candidates really ought to speak more about what they plan to do with the tax system.
