"The FinanzAmt (tax office)
The FinanzAmt always takes from my papa all his money away and gives it to the state. The state needs the money to build more tax offices.
The FinanzAmt emerges once a year and then everybody whines. It is like the flu.
The tax explanation is therefore so important and one can not understand the tax laws without explanation.
With workers the tax is always immediately withdrawn from their pay, thereby they don't pay taxes so seldom as prominent people.
