Today I have to talk about another ex- word which is
What does this one mean? Well, it's a tax that the government of a country puts on goods that are produced for sale in that country :) Easy, isn't it? In Polish we call it akcyza or opłata akzycowa.
This word, however, also functions as a verb and means obłożyć akcyzą.
I think it's also practical to look at a couple of nice phrases that use the word excise:
- duty of excise - opłata akcyzowa
- excise officer - poborca akcyzy, urzędnik modopolowy
- excise tax - podatek akcyzowy, opłata akcyzowa
- evasion of excise duty - unikanie płacenia podatku akcyzowego
Why do we have to pay excise taxes? Is it fair at all?
