My son told me yesterday that where he lives (AL) there's talk of making people having yard sales collect taxes. I'm sure governments, city, state, and federal, lie awake at night because underground bartering and personal sales escape tax collection. IMO, tax has already been paid on new items once and people are going to resist. An underground economy will flourish if the economy gets really bad. I don't see how over 400,000 people sign up for unemployment every WEEK and things are improving.
