Black market

A 23% sales tax would create a HUGE black market.

In my business, we export a product in the $3000 to $12000 USD range to the Europeans. ALL of them ask us to send duplicate invoices for thousands of dollars less, so they can beat the VAT (value added tax).

Of course an expanding black market will cause an expanding police state to keep collecting money for the state.
