    Wrong again

    Sometimes businesses invest to retain market share.

    Then you can start by reporting your own personal attacks:

    Child support is tax-exempt to the receiver....taxed to the giver.
    Estate tax is paid by the estate and tax-exempt to the beneficiary.

    Give me another example of the same exact pile of money taxed and then taxed again.
    Happy to oblige Maggie - but just because its you.

    I get paid and pay tax on that money - all of my salary is taxed. So I take $100 dollars of it - write HAYMARKET on it and go to the store with it. I buy something for $100 and hand my bill with my name on it to the cashier who charges me 6% tax on that purchase. My $100 dollar bill - of which I was already taxed in income tax from my salary - is now subject to another tax. It is taxed twice.

    So the cashier turns it over to the store. Later, a supplier who insists on being paid in cash, makes a delivery and part of his payment is my $100 bill. He signs a receipt and acknowledges that he is responsible for his own taxes on the money. So he pays tax on my $100 bill also. He goes to the gas station and fills up his truck and the cost is $100.00 which he pays for with my bill with my name on it. Some 15 to 20% of what he paid for is tax.

    The gas station owner takes the bill and pays a snow plow driver the next day to plow out the station after five inches of snow. He pays income tax on his income of the $100 bill.

    And on and on and on it goes.

    No more suprised than I was when you stated 'its against the law' only to retract to 'no, there is no law'.

    You need to try harder to understand the person you are debating

    I said reinvenstment is sometimes done to continue profitability, which is another way of saying to protect market share.

    You want so badly to be right, you aren’t even understanding what you are arguing any longer.

    True. It's obvious that statements of fact have no affect on your inane beliefs

    That would make sense if I had said "it's against the law".

    Or was that just another post of yours that you made even though you don't believe what you said?

    No, you argued that reinvestment was ALWAYS done to increase profits

    You were wrong. Sometimes retaining market share results in reduced profits.
