That's stupid.  There are going to literally tax a tax.

 

What's next, sales tax on your income?  You are selling your service to a company, so you SHOULD pay income tax and the company should be sales tax.

 

That's ridiculous.

    One of the LP members from Australia, maybe it was savagegoose, once mentioned that an Australian lottery ticket is $1.03 AUS and the $.03 takes care of the taxes for the winner (in a way, Australia does not tax gambling wins).

    Sounds like a great way to go to me. But if Virginia wants a tax on both ends everyone should boycott the Virginia lottery until they coime to their senses.

    The money the people play the lottery with has already been taxed!

    That is right, people from Va should quit buying lottery tickets, that would put a stop to that nonsense.

    Lt them know how you feel by not buying anymore.

    As they won't understand words, it would be Chinese to them.
