Tax is a compulsory contribution imposed by a public authority. It is a payment which does not guarantee an exact amount of services to be rendered to the taxpayer in return. Governance, on the other hand, refers to the quality of governing usually characterized by accountability, transparency, fairness, participation, and responsiveness, among others.
