I would tend to think that it

I would tend to think that it would depends on the type of tax you pay and to which government body it is paid. There is no federal sales tax so paying it would not entitle you to vote for any federal office, only state and local. Income taxes paid to federal government entitles you to vote in federal elections. Property taxes usually go to the state.

I abhor taxes as it creates such debate. Eliminating federal taxes would leave voting to those who own land. Consequently, it permits individuals to acquire more wealth and become landowners, thus gaining voting rights. Those who are content to resign themselves to a life of poverty will simply forego voting rights and be at the mercy of those who have shown a vested level of responsibility.
