Hooker Fined $820,000 For Unpaid Taxes

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"Poland`s tax office has levied a fine of 2.3 million zlotys ($820,000) on an unemployed woman for failing to pay tax on income worth at least 13.7 million zlotys she said she had earned as a prostitute." Reuters

The woman shouldn`t be described as "unemployed", she`s a member of the world`s oldest profession. Being a hooker is hard work, that`s why prostitutes are often referred to as "working girls".

Reuters should have identified the lady by name, just because she`s a sex worker that doesn`t mean she`s a faceless, nameless nobody.

I doubt that the lady of the evening kept good records, or any records, chances are she didn`t make anywhere near that much money.

Poland`s tax office levied such a huge fine against the sex worker because they are prejudiced against her profession.

The lady needs to stop bragging about how much money she makes.
