In a word? Chaos.
Riots in the streets with no police to enforce the law.
Roads and public utilities in complete disrepair.
In some countries, no hospitals or doctors.
No schools, and thus an uneducated population.
The economy would collapse.
Tazes get a bad rap. WIthout tazes, we wouldn't have such a high standard of living. There are several countries in the world that do not pay taxes. Are you sure you want to live n any of them?

Well, starting with you , there would be a trial and a big, big fine and jail sentence. Then the others who felt as you do would be subject to the same treatment and you would not be lonely. However since money is now short you would have stale bread and brackish water. Can't afford to feed prisoners.But you would work breaking up big boulders with small hammers into little pebbles to repair roads which were incurring holes because no one was paying taxes.Care for any more figments of the imagination?

The country would collapse and the Chinese would take over. After that anybody that asked a question like yours would be beaten, imprisoned, or just killed. Given that thought, while we complain, we get a pretty good return on our investment. At least for those that really do pay taxes. As for those that don't, they get a really good deal.

Nothing would happen to the Governments...
The U.S. Government is not established to protect their people. The U.S. Government was established to protect the Government from the people. In addition, the U.S. Government is absolutely controlled by the "ILLUMINATI". If we didn't pay taxes we'd only be hurting ourselves. We pay taxes to live here. Totalitarian tip-toe at its best.

It would be very bad, the government wouldnt have any money at all, or not near enough to run properly, there would be no money to keep ppl in jail, so they would probably have to let them die, or release them...no money to pay police officers or fire men, they would riot or not go to work, no one to save ppl, it would slowly, but quickly all go down hill.
