It will just increase the amount of guys who do it ILLEGALLY. this is an even bigger incentive for all these yahoos to go off and stay off the books. The low life illegit scrubs will now REALLY be making more money than us!

robbing the government...don't you mean robbing me since it is via force..I cannot force the government to do anything...anyway

ONE BIG THANKS TO ALL OF THE COMPLACENT SOB'S WHO DO NOT CONCERN THEMSELVES WITH CIVICS.

THIS OUGHT TO BE CALLED AN APATHOCRACY...SINCE THOSE WHO ARE APATHETIC ALLOW FOR THOSE WHO ARE ACTIVE TO COUNT FOR NOTHING

acctually this is really going to help the industry....its foresurly going to straighten up everything and will make this industry respectfull as is was 10 years ago.

your going to have to sharpen the pencils on the book keeping side....im just going to have to imagine you will pay these taxes either monthly or quarterly.....so you will have to insure you dont recive the extra 6% and spend it before you have to pay the government


All in all it will be a good thing IMHO

Any person who has the capacity to read ( UAW LEMMINGS NEED NOT APPLY) has the opportunity to take himself down to his local library and borrow a little book called the Federalist and another called the Anti-Federalist. Once these are read, then maybe just maybe he might want to get involved in civics.

Let's not forget, they are also raising the state income tax. So in addition to more bookkeeping for the service tax, you'll pay more for the privilege of working.

Sounds like they are trying to tax us into prosperity. It never works.
