Erm, tax MMORPGs as in..?

You mean for those people who will spend all their time playing a game then selling ingame items for real money?

If thats the case then they cant really do ****, its up to those people who make money from it to declare their earnings.

The government wont actually be able to tax MMORPGs in any way, atleast not without being completely morally fuxxed.

glover69: they plan on taxing anyone who plays a game like a fixed amount every month or soo (eg.. non db buyers £/&#036; etc, db buyers £/&#036; etc and ppl who play games for a living and get paid like &#036;500 a day for playign for an hour.

tetnes: ah yeah people know what pppl do for a living so like if ppl suddenly get money in their bank for no reason and are unemployed sounds a bit dodgy i mean come on you cant say its your b day money every day can you lol.

KatsuAkimoto: im yet to find any online stuff about it and the paper was the echo (its a uk paper so i dunno if you can get a hold of it).

fullmetalferret: lol no its liek for ppl over the age of 16 with a job of any kind its like makers of games get taxed for realising making etc games and the players are gunna be taxed for playing them it sux.. and yeah the government are dam greedy so i expect the will try it.

basically anywhere where money is involved the government will tax it they are gay like that they do it with everything. cuz like ppl who play games and get paid loads for it are getting tax free money thats why its cropped up but yeah if anyone hears anythign more or wants more answers just ask i mean i dont know alot in such early stages but im sure something will come up.

Well, they legally cant do jack-**** to justify any of it if its just a tax for playing the games.

The government can always find a way to justify something. Most times, just being the government is the justification. Do I agree with this?

Think I&#39;ll keep that comment to mehself neh?

thats stupid they can not add a tax to online games. now they can raise taxes on ur internet connection but as far as online if they raise taxes on games. they have to raise it on everything not just 1 thing plus to many ppl will trick there way out of it. because these games make a lot of money off of all of u kids playin them. each game on the net has a sponser that pays them for u just going to there web page. hint the pop ups and spy ware. anyways i wouldn&#39;t beleave this at all. cuz i have not heard anything about this on net or off of net.

I doubt that they will check and tax how much gold you get for hunting in CO. However, I do think that they will tax you when you sell the game gold for cash irl.

Lets say people are selling 1 million for &#036;1. You can make all the millions you want, but once you sell it for real money you have to pay taxes for the income you made.
