This is legal but unconstitutional in most countries. However a single shilling/dollar of income may be legally and constitutionally taxed up to 4 to 5 times and this may not be necessarily be deemed to be double taxation.
A good example is when you earn a salary you pay PAYE (Pay As You Earn), if this money is paid through the bank your bank will tax it again (excise duty).Assuming you have bought airtime/internet data with that same income you’ll be charged VAT and excise duty.Assuming your going to use the same internet data for social media, in some countries you’ll have to pay OTT .
