A common complaint of American Colonists, they felt they were taxed from England without having any vote in Parliament.A common complaint of American Colonists, they felt they were taxed from England without having any vote in Parliament. do you guys know what it is? Intolerable Acts, Stamp Act,Proclamation of 1763,Taxation Without Representation

A common complaint of American Colonists, they felt they were taxed from England without having any vote in Parliament is the statement about No Taxation Without Representation. It was a popular slogan in the 1700s.  


No Taxation Without Representation  

The slogan “No Taxation Without Representation” emerged as one of the 27 guidelines of the American colonies in the thirteen colonies. These demands were the main cause of the outbreak of the American Revolution. In short, the slogan “No Taxation Without Representation” was a claim because they did not have representation in the British Parliament (which is very far away) while they must continue to pay taxes.

They demanded this because whatever laws they passed would affect life in the colony. For example, the Sugar Act and Stamp Act were obviously illegal if they were based on the Bill of Rights in 1689. Their demands were very harsh, that the government should not levy taxes on the population unless the population has representatives in the government.  

The claim developed in the British Civil War after the refusal of MP John Hampden to pay the boat tax. The slogan "No Taxation Without Representation" in the context of American Colonial taxation first appeared in the February 1768 issue of London Magazine, page 89.
