Italian Lawmakers to Consider Porn Tax

Dec 08 12:34 PM US/Eastern

ROME - Italians would have to pay a 20 percent tax on pornography according to a budget amendment that cleared a first legislative hurdle, news reports said Thursday. The proposed tax was approved at committee level and is expected to go before the Chamber of Deputies, Italy's lower parliamentary house, early next week.

The tax is expected to raise about euro220 million (US$260 million) to help reduce the national deficit and to help fund government tax breaks to families.

"I believe the porn tax is important not for moralistic reasons, which don't concern me, but because I think that at a time of difficult economic conditions for families it is right to tax products that are not essential," lawmaker Daniela Santache was quoted as saying by the ANSA news agency.

This is a set up for the most embarrasing prosecution ever - porn tax evasion.

Memos are being distributed to the clergy as we speak.

Well, we do have a "sin" tax on just about everything that is "morally" wrong... Alcohol, tobacco and porn.

Do you really think that DVD of Horney High School Sluts 7 is really worth 40 bucks?

And "most" Americans don't get it for free... the porn industry in America alone brings in more revenue than the movie, television, music and pro sports industries combined.

2 and 3 suck, number 1 is the best. 4 and 5 aren't bad either. It went all downhill after that though. :-/
