Being a voluntarist , If you want your own society or "government" you can levy "taxes" or charges for services on a voluntary basis.

User fees instead of taxes.  The government DOES provide services to society that we all do in fact use.  There's no denying that.  Just because the vast majority of crap they do is garbage that we have no interest in doesn't mean that a small portion of their activity isn't actually useful to society.  And those particularly rare features of government that can be beneficial could be funded easily by use fees.

Nope, never.
But then, I don't think government is necessary either.

Pay for the services you use.
