<<rebate on the VAT the paid>>

In Florida, the vendor gets a percentage of the amount collected, albiet small, but it does cover the costs of submitting, in most cases.

<<How about this for a sale?>>

Really!! How many people do you think will go through these type gymnastics in order to save a few bucks sales tax? Besides, paying the tax is better than the alternative, going to jail.

The illustrations you submit show the genius of mankind being displayed in their devious ways to circumvent the system, any system, as refered to in one of my previuos posts. The current income tax system opens the door to many, many more of this type thing.
