ABSTRACT
Some would say that taxation and human rights is an oxymoron. An oxymoron is, of course, the conjunction of two otherwise apparently irreconcilable concepts. I personally do not believe that taxation and human rights are in any way irreconcilable or conflicting; I think human rights are a fundamental aspect of taxation. Human rights limit what governments can do to their citizens - to people affected by their decisions. I think at the moment we are at a very exciting stage, where we are seeing the extension of human rights principles into the tax field, to provide limits to what governments can do to taxpayers. It is part of the balance between the powers of the State and the rights of taxpayers.
