world of warcraft tax

“There is a concern that the IRS might step forward with regulations that start taxing transactions that occur within virtual economies. This, I believe, would be a mistake,” Chairman Jim Saxton said today.


but really?  so… i log on to wow and kill a dragon.  it drops 2 gold, and i owe – what – 34% of that to the IRS in taxes, but if my annual income in one year is more than 30 geldars it goes on a graduated scale?  only the us government could come up with a way to require accountants in a game with elves, dwarves, and orcs.

thats supposed to be a joke in the onion, not actual government policy.
