(1)...we should consider presenting prices of taxable goods and services in tax-inclusive amount so we won't have to deal with pennies.
i.e.: instead of $3.99 (plus 8.5% tax) for a plate of salad why not make it $4.25 or $4.50? sellers will need only to set aside the appropriate percentage for applicable taxes based on total sales turnover and consumers won't ever deal with pennies anymore.


In most European countries, while stationed with the armed forces, the military bases do not use pennies... they round up or round down. It's a great idea as I think pennies are a waste... they take up too much space and are just a pain to deal with... I say round up or down... call it done and down with pennies!
