An indirect tax is the tax collected by an intermediary from the person who bears the ultimate economic burden of the tax. It in fact increases the price of goods so that consumers are actually paying the tax by paying more for the products. The examples of indirect tax are service tax and value added tax (VAT). Here, the intermediary later files a tax return and forwards tax proceeds to the government with the return.
