How do I deal with people taking advantage of me at work?

There are some colleagues in my office who handover their work to me. It's my new job and it's been four months . I have been helping them because I want to be a team player but now I feel like a loser who is treated like a doormat. If I say no then they report to the boss and the boss takes their side. How do I deal with this?

    become allies with the boss and sabotage your co workers like they are doing to you

    Meet with your boss and discuss your duties.  From your post, it sounds like everyone but you thinks part of your job is to take tasks handed to you by other people.  You need to find out whether or not this is true.  

    It's one thing to have a co-worker take advantage, but from your description everyone does this on a regular basis and your boss agrees that you should be doing this work.  If that is not what you want to do or feel you cannot do the assignments, start looking for a new job.

    Start by praying to GOD about this.

    Is it possible there is a higher boss, like an owner?

    If you truly feel your co-workers are violating a professional boundary, have a conversation with your HR Department and/or your Manager's Manager, and share your experiences. Colleagues helping each other is not uncommon, but when this becomes one-sided and an assumption/expectation unfolds as in your workplace, it is essential you become proactive and have your voice heard.
