Taxation is nothing new, but this legislation has reached a new level of craziness. Did you know that a sliced bagel incurs an extra 8 cent tax in New York than if you’d just bought it whole? That same tax applies for any bagel sold for on-premise consumption, or one that has cream cheese on it or is toasted.
New York isn’t alone; far from it. England taxes it’s citizens for simply owning a TV. Even if you’re blind you must pay half the tax.
What other crazy taxes are there?
