Wacky Taxes

Think you’re getting bent over this tax season? It could be worse:

• Arkansas taxes tattoos and piercings.

• Tennessee taxes illegal drugs.. that’s right, you need to pay a tax to put a stamp on your pot..pothead.

• Don’t play poker in Alabama.. they tax playing cards

• Maine taxes blueberries.

• Utah taxes sexually explicit business.. (wonder if blogging in your underwear counts?)

It could be worse though.. the average US citizen pays 29% in taxes..

Compare that to france where they pay 50.1% and we have it sorta good.
