Taxman (George Harrison, The Beatles)

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet

Taxman!
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for (Aahh Mr. Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more (Aahh Mr. Heath)
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

And you're working for no one but me
Taxman!

Expensive kilometer

The Railway company has received a subsidy of 0,13 bln. Eur for the transport performed in public interest in 2010.

Should the current extent of tranport (e.g. No. of trains and routes) be financed directly from passanger payments, tickets would have to cost 3,25 times more. Every citizen of Slovakia has paid on average 28,0 Eur for railways, no matter whether he has entered a train in 2010 or not. For every single kilometer in a train every citizen had to pay 0,07 Eur in taxes. To compare the costs, fuel costs of common automobile, consuming 7l/100km were app. 0,08 Eur per kilometer.
