What distinguishes a fee from a tax?
A fee is a charge imposed on an individual for a service that the person chooses to receive.  A tax is a charge for public services and facilities without the need for a direct relationship between the use by an individual taxpayer and the tax paid.  Below are distinguishing characteristics of fees and taxes.

  • A fee is designed to defray the costs of a government service or regulatory activity while a tax is designed to raise general revenue.
  • The amount of a fee must be no greater than the costs of the service, whereas a tax has no such monetary limitation.

    The attached flow chart shows by example the types of service that would be supported mostly or entirely by taxes and those that would be supported mostly or entirely by fees.
