Why did England pose taxes on the colonies?

England or Great Britain posed taxes on the colonies as it was very expensive to look after the upkeep of them. For example, when the French attacked America in the early 18th century it cost a lot for British and Canadian troops to defend the Americas from attack. Slightly off topic but; it was therefore irrational when the American colonists were then taxed and they held things such as the Boston tea party because of these taxes which were mostly to pay for the defece and upkeep of the American colony. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- one of the main reasons was that the still forming America had to make things for them selves. they had blacksmiths,textiles,farming and so on.because of that , they no longer had to buy from England BUT were Selling to England and other places. England wanted merchantilism(the people had to give a part of the sales to the king + taxes) and (we)THE PEOPLE SAID NO. so England raised taxes to get their money and soon the war for Independance broke out.
