Taxpayer

A person who pays taxes. In the United States, nearly everyone is a taxpayer at some level because almost everyone pays FICA taxes, sales taxes and other taxes. Colloquially, however, the word refers to persons who pay income and capital gains taxes. The word is sometimes used in a political context to make both conservative and liberal arguments.
