It is also a fact that most income taxes are used to pay for the "borrowed" money created from thin air. This means that the taxpayers are responsible for not only having their wealth inflated away from them but the taxpayers must pay the central bankers for the privilege.
Governments have learned with the help of the Central Banks to loot their populations by devaluing their currencies. This cheap money means that the governments are able to pay their bills with currency that is not worth as much in the present as when the expenses were incurred in the past. Unfortunately, the people end up paying the price by unemployment, underemployment, inflation and high prices.
