The taxes placed on the colonists were not fair. Many of the taxes that we pay to this day are not fair but we do not rebut them, we simply pay the good government for letting us do our jobs. When is the last time you questioned a tax? The last time I did, I got the typical response that the tax goes to paving our roads. I should get a new road every year with the amount of taxes we are forced to pay and it should go in different ways every year.
The taxes placed on the colonists were extremely unfair. They were too high and were created out of greed and the money went back to England and not the colony or for their own benefit. It was a loss for the colonists and I do not think it was fair at all.
