Leading up to the American Revolution, the French and Indian Was about the British taking land in North America. the French were wanting to claim land. Well that led to French fight with the British and British won, claiming more land. This caused Britain to pay the taxes.

Britain put taxes on newspaper, legal documents etc. The colonist were angry and did not like this.
British taxed British goods sent to the American colonies. The colonists were furious and this lead to " no taxation without representation" American colonist thought this was not right.
