For what purpose were roman taxes used and how high were the taxes?

Answer:

Roman taxes varied in their rates and harshness during different periods but taxes within Italy were usually kept very low in order to keep the people happy. Other regions, however, were often subjected to high tax rates and it was common for corrupt officials to steal or repossess vast amounts of people’s properties and possessions for their own gains. These taxes were used for public buildings, such as aqueducts and amphitheaters, paying public officials, and paying for the army.
