I have absolutely no trouble in calling out extortion. Excess taxes and fees are simply extortion. The money doesn’t really belong to you. You aren’t in actual possession of it but someone else has it and you decide that you want it. So, through various manipulations including but not limited to taxes and fees you gain money that wasn’t yours to begin with. That is extortion. Wikipedia has a pretty good page on the subject.

Must be learning it from the Europeans.
