For these and other reasons, Thoreau refused to pay his poll tax for a number of years. How does this sentence prepare readers for the final line of the paragraph? It lets readers know his refusal to pay wasn't just a passing idea. It lets readers know Thoreau was a thoughtful man. It tells readers his reasons for refusal were not important. It tells readers why Thoreau was not arrested for so long.
