The ancient Egyptians had sucha wonderful system of taxation- There was a nile o meter in most temple complexes ,where Nile levels were measured– if the Nile was over a certain level meaning floods taxes were waived off!

Today apparently taxes are fixed asper the exterior of the houses so you can see the results! apparently the interiors are grandoise.Of course I could be wrong about present day taxes as I am only going by hear say and what we were told by the guides and other people there ,but most of the houses had unfinished exteriors in the middle cass areas.
