    about uncountable noun...

    Hi~Teachers~

    Can anybody tell me the distinction between "tax" and "taxes" when they used as a noun?? eg. "a large amount of tax" or "a large amount of taxes" which one is correct??

    And I saw both "government revenues" and "government revenue" on website when I googled. Are there some differences?

    I will appreciate your answer so much

    I think the plural signifies diversity in the case of the first example.
    Revenue is used either as a non-count singular or a non-count plural to mean the same thing.
