Every country has their
rules for running their Governments. We must remember these rules are
made by human and there could be a few errors and confusions which the
general public doesn’t understand clearly. There might be a few issues
which even qualified accountants are unclear about possibly due to lack
of experience. If
thousands of civilians are trapped into any taxation rule, then it is
the Taxation Department’s mistake and they need to FIX THEIR RULES FOR
taking lessons from the past.
If they start going against the interest and wellbeing of the general
public, then there is a chance that the public will get
tensions/anxieties which may trigger medical conditions such as, High
Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Diabetic problems, Thyroid issues, etc.
and in some extreme cases even deaths as well. It will surely
costs on general public as well as governments. In regards
charitable donation, keep in mind if someone gets a $10,000
refund, he/she might have to donate around $5,000
get that, so his/her take-home refund is only $5,000
They fall into this trap due to the Taxation Department’s wrong and
confusing rules, since they haven’t mentioned anywhere in that specific
rule that the department will start investigating these types of
charitable donations. One
of the main reasons why Government don’t fix it for future, could be
lawmakers which includes top level political parties/leaders might also
getting benefits from its loopholes and are unjustly protected, while
others fall into this trap and might get heart attack even in extreme
cases death etc., and it needs full investigations.

just few examples:
