VAT, Excise Tax and Custom Duty are various forms of indirect taxes. They are imposed by the government with the intention of raising the final price of the product. Their prime objective is to reduce the consumption of that specific product. This mechanism is very simple. Obviously when the price will be high, lesser people will be motivated to buy that item. For example government imposes taxes on demerit goods for the purpose of discouraging their consumption and eventually reducing their negative impacts.
Indirect taxes are those which are not directly levied on the income of any individual or a firm. These taxes are are taken by the public through their consumption. Such taxes are added into the price of the products and therefore when an individual pays for a product, he also has to pay the tax. Some times many people do not even know that they are paying a large amount of tax in this way.
