A Proposed Tax on the Oldest Profession

Or at least the middle men, so to speak, who make it all possible:

[Sen. Charles Grassley] would hit pimps with fines and lengthy jail sentences for failing to file employment forms and withhold taxes for the women and girls under their command. The proposal would make certain tax crimes a felony when the money comes from a criminal activity. “The IRS goes after drug traffickers. It can go after sex traffickers,” he said in a prepared statement.

The post also notes that the IRS already "...conducts lengthy audits of [pimps' and sex traffickers'] lifestyles in order to estimate their incomes from illegal activities and determine taxes due."

Now those audits have to be rather...interesting. Maybe they use Doctor Detroit as a guide?

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
