In Response To: Re: You're still supposed to pay (pete)
First of all. I'd like ot say that
Where exactly do you report your "use"? I mean on what form? I don't think I have ever filed any income tax related forms that asked the value of my out-of-state purchased items nor have I seen lines for the "Use Tax" or anything. Maybe I missed it? That's possible.
But to the best of my knowledge I haven't even seen it in any of the many tax forms instructions/worksheets I have read/filled out.
So where and how do you report your "use" in order to pay your "Use Tax"?
Why do you suppose they even call it a "Use Tax"?
Does this "Use Tax" mean that I have to pay a tax just to "use" an item or product. For instance, I could "use" an item you borrowed from a friend or picked up for free because someone was just giving it away. Do you have to pay tax on these items, too? I would think so, otherwise they would call it a purchasing tax, not a use tax.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
