I imagine this is scrupulousness, but I figured I'd ask.
No, why would it? Render unto caesar...
Without the taxes collected by CRA, Inland Revenue, and the IRS many vital services would not be possible.
Collecting taxes isn't evil. It's when tax collectors over tax or cheat the people to get an extra cut that's evil.
Saint Matthew was a tax collector for a regime that killed Christ.

What is the proposed sin that you are examining?  Without that, it's impossible to determine your answer.

I'm assuming the sin is working for a tax collect agency? No clue.

Except collecting tax is not a sin....so I'm lost as to what is being sought.
