What are taxes in Ancient Egypt?

The Egyptian government gave top priority to tax collection. For the effective calculation and collection of taxes, the education of boys from an early age in schools was established. Taxes were carefully set and recalculated, so trained professionals were needed.

Taxes could be both in kind (agricultural products) and cash. Trade duties, tax on purchases (be it land, slaves, and the like) and many other types of taxes were the basis of the well-being and prosperity of Egypt.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society.
