We pay taxes for a reason, your tax money comes back to you in lots of different ways. Taxes pay for all government services you rely on.

Your tax money does not come back to you. We are talking about taxing labor here, and when you file your 1040, if you do, not a cent goes to 'services' as you seem to believe.
You pay for 'services', whether you want them or not, through a multitude of other taxes. You buy gasoline, cigarettes, go for a few drinks on weekends? Great, you have paid your share....via indirect taxation.
Not that the police and military are services, but that is another topic....
