UN Tax Bureaucrats Coming to a Town Near You

There are ongoing debates over tax hikes and cuts in the United States domestic front, which makes it extremely frightening to imagine a world in which third-party, international organizations could impose taxes on countries. Global taxes would give the power to tax overseas to organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN).

The Center for Freedom and Prosperity released a study titled “Global Taxes Threaten Fiscal Sovereignty and Democratic Accountability” which can be viewed here. If these organizations succeed in passing their proposed global taxes, they would be applied in a "one size fits all" manner to the affected nations.

There is much at stake when international organizations, such as these, seek to impose taxes on sovereign nations. The individual freedom of each nation and their ability to tax their own citizens at rates they desire and see fit for their country’s needs are in jeopardy. What laws will govern WHO and the UN if these taxes are imposed on the sovereign nations? No international governing body exists to enforce these taxes and the countries involved will no longer have the final say in which taxes should be imposed on its citizens.

The transcendence of international boundaries on taxation issues by the UN and WHO will transform the protocol of taxation methods by extending it to a multilateral position. Where is the political accountability in the equation? That is the question we should be asking ourselves. These multinational organizations should not manipulate the power of the sovereign nations at the interstate level to compete for the last say in tax regulations.
