God and taxes

From the Bible:

Taxes are paid for the support of godly governments. Rom. 13:6.  
A poll or head tax can be levied (which is to be of a small amount) according to a census taken on persons of a certain age. Exod. 30:12-15; Lev. 27:3-8; Num. 3:40-51.  
All men subject to a poll tax are to pay the same amount (the rich shall not pay more, and the poor less). Exod. 30:13-15.  
Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessings God has given him (advalorern tax). Deut 16:17; 1 Cor. 16:1-2.  
Abusive and heavy taxation leads to rebellion by the people. 1 Kings 12:13-19; 2 Chron. 10:13-19.  
Abusive and heavy taxation causes an impoverished nation and burdensome debts. Neh. 5:1-5.  
Oppressive taxation is often due to the sins of the nation. Neh. 9:32-37.  
Tithes and offerings collected as taxes are to be put into the treasury. Neh. 10:38; Neh. 13:12-13.
