Yeah, it's not really a simple matter.
On one hand, tax evasion here is rampant in the upper-middle and all-the-way-upper classes, entire high-profile residential complexes have been found
to be declared as "unused land" to tax authorities in order to pay the lowest tax rate.
On the other hand, that's gonna make my steam library kinda stalled...
If they can crack down (as they are doing) on high-profile tax evaders with this then I'm all for it... (the tracking of credit cards)
For the things you don't want to b tracked we still have cash.
I'm not very fond of that 15% flat tax though...
I don't get why they don't implement this kind of taxes in a gradual way (so for example, a transaction of less than say 2000 usd receives 5% tax
while another one of more than 10.000 usd receives 20% tax.)
