It is relative to so many factors that any change in any of them is bound to change our estimate about the taxable capacity of a nation. Findlay Shirras gives the following factors which determine the taxable capacity of a nation.

What do you mean by taxable capacity? The perception of taxable capacity has racked the brains of not a few economists and publicists. Dalton describes it "a dim and confused conception". Findlay Stirras, on the other hand, thinks that it is of great practical importance. "It is always wise and useful," he says, "for a government to know even roughly the limit that the country can contribute by way of taxation both in the ordinary and extra-ordinary circumstances."

Meaning of direct taxes and indirect taxes Meaning of direct taxes A tax is believed to be a direct tax when it is not anticipated to be transferred to any other individual. The individual who compensates it in the first case is also anticipated to bear it. Therefore, the effect and the prevalence are on the same individual. An instance of a direct tax is income-tax. The man who shells out income-tax has also to bear it.

(b) A turnover tax at each stage of production adds to the .price of the commodity at the final stage, and is, therefore, borne by the ultimate consumer. In the case of raw materials, it adds to the cost of production and raises the prices of manufactured goods. Such a tax is said to discourage trade and industry, and hence its incidence may be much widespread due to its adverse effects on trade and industry. It may create unemployment and thus make the workers suffer.

Incidence of a Commodity Tax The degree to which the tax will essentially be transferred will depend upon the character of supply and demand curves. If demand is not flexible, as is the instance with the necessities of life, the citizens have to purchase the goods. The manufacturer will be in a better situation and more or less the total weight of the tax will be transferred on to the customer.

Importance of Incidence of taxation The study of incidence is very important. The tax system is not merely aimed at raising a certain amount of revenue, butt the aim is to raise it from those sections of the people who can best bear the tax. The aim, in short, is to secure a just distribution of the tax burden. This obviously cannot be done unless an effort is made to trace the incidence of each tax levied by the State.

Principle of ability to pay as a canon of taxation The most important principle of taxation is the principle of equity or equality. Adam Smith has placed the canon of equality in the fore-front. The rest of the canons are merely of administrative nature. Therefore, this canon may be called the principle of taxation. The proper distribution of the burden of taxation is one of the fundamental problems in the public finance of modern democratic Slates. The question of what ought to be done i...

Other Canons of Taxation Economic science has progressed much since the days of Adam Smith. Later writers have added to his canons. The additions are:— Canon of Productivity. This canon emphasizes that a tax should bring in a substantial amount of money to the State. After all, the main object of the taxing authority is to secure funds. Therefore, a tax which does not yield a fair income is useless. It is much better to have a few taxes which yield good revenue instead of many taxe...

Adam Smith's Canons of Taxation Adam Smith's contribution to this part of economic theory is still regarded as classic. His enunciation of the canons of taxation has hardly been surpassed in clarity and simplicity. His four celebrated canons are as follows:— 1. Canon of Equality. Equality here does not mean that all tax-payers should pay an equal amount. Equality here means equality or justice. It means that the broadest shoulders must bear the heaviest burden.
