Virgin Tax?

And you thought being taxed on cigarettes and soda was bad. I have joked before about how if we ever got around to taxing prostitution we could probably wipe out the debt in no time, but in Germany they do. They tax it at 50%. That nice girl who sold her virginity on line may be on the hook to pay German taxes even though she is from Romania but living in Germany on a student visa.
The teenage student who sold her virginity for $13,827 could have to hand over half of her earnings to the taxman.

German inland revenue investigators are studying reports that Alina Percea, 18, was paid in cash for a weekend of sex with a middle-aged Italian businessman after auctioning her virginity online.

Prostitution is legal in Germany — where Alina studies — but hookers are taxed at 50 percent of their earnings.

Can't wait until CA and NY implement this plan. CA may have a problem when it comes to figuring out how to tax the Hollywood crowd though.
