To meet the necessities occuring due to the bad conditions, Turkish government levied this tax. Then, an act known as wealth tax act was released. The amount of this tax was unusual. If taxpayers was to pay this, their wealth would decrease and if they was not to pay, they would be sent to work in general services. So, this application brought a debate about this tax.
