Discounting -- coupons, sales, loss leaders -- are standard promotional events whereby a merchant offers extraordinary savings to move excess merchandise or to stimulate foot traffic and cash flow.
Sales taxes are levied on nominal cash receipts, and not on perceived value.
Taxable income (Fe'ral, state, county &c...) is based on the difference between the nominal cost of goods and their nominal sales price, denominated in US currency -- whether the transactions are electronic, paper drafts from your checking account, or tendered CASH IN HAND.
Ask every one of the locally owned merchants with whom you do business if they would like to reduce their tax burden by accepting United States LEGAL TENDER gold and silver coins and paying their lawful obligations based on the nominal value of these legal tender coins. Don't bother with the big boxes -- they're too intimate with the Fe'ral Reserve and they dare not defy their corporate masters.
Let's use THEIR money and THEIR rules to remove THEIR hands from OUR throats.
