Maybe you are one of the people who feel as if taxing isn't such a big deal. Don't fool yourself! Taxing is the same as robbery with the threat of extortion or bullying. It is violent robbery. The threats can be verbal or non-verbal (gestures or looks).
The Criminal Code provides for legal consequences for taxers on robbery and extortion.
Taxing victims are often afraid to report their aggressors and sometimes think their aggressors will never let them go, but the police know that most of the time, once the law is in the picture, the aggressors stop.
So you should really report the situation to your parents and even file a complaint with the SPVM.
Why? Because if you don't report the situation:
the taxer is more likely to tax you again or turn on another victim
the taxer is more likely to tax you more violently the next time and demand bigger and bigger amounts
Even though you are not an adult yet, you still have civic responsibilities. If you witness someone being taxed, report it.
Taxing is a crime and there are serious consequences for this type of infraction.
