    A tax is something everyone pays whether you use a service or not.

    A fee is a tax only for those that use a specific service.

    At least that’s how I see it.

    Yeah, I know that there’s technically a difference…but let’s not kid ourselves. Fees and taxes are more than just kissing cousins.

    Yes, fees are taxes you can introduce when you don’t want to be accused of raising taxes.

    Parking meters have the additional benefit of discouraging all-day parking so that curb-side parking is available for the patrons of the local businesses. In many municipalities, the cost of maintaining parking meters (checking them and emptying the coins) exceeds the revenues gained.
