Tag proposal: "Law enforcment" as synonym for police

Recommend tag merger: judge - judiciary

These are not synonyms A judge is an individual. The judiciary is the arm of government. It's like saying the President is the same as the Executive or a politician is the same as Parliament.

Should the [taxes] tag be merged as a synonym for [tax-law]?

Merge and synonymize It seems like taxes is used as shorthand for tax-law or any sort of tax-obligation prescribed under such tax-laws.
