    I cannot believe you missed the tax stamp on full-auto firearms and the tax stamps for short barrel rifles / shotguns.

    In Sicily, if you have a radio in your car, you will have paid a radio tax. If the carabinieri pulls you over for ... anything, and checks your registration, etc. If you don't have a car radio and stamp, don't get caught with a portable, even in your trunk... they'll write you up.

    I may have missed them, but how about a Driver's license tax and a CPL permit tax?

    What happened is the government decided to start doing hundreds of things they shouldn't be doing and needed a way to fund not only the programs, but also the director, asst directors, supervisors, and worker bees for all of these programs. Then when there got to be too many programs, they had to make new government departments to oversee said programs thereby gaining even more mid-level managers and and directors. These directors liked having lots of worker bees under them and started petitioning for more programs and then needed more mid-levelers under them to oversee these unneeded, unrequested programs..... Then, of course, the need to fund all these creative programs had to lead to creative taxes....

    In Missouri we have an additional handgun tax they call a permit to acquire ($10). Where I live we also have a ambulance tax.

    Doggone Taxes...Terrible.
    Wouldn't mind paying them so much if so much $$$ didn't get wasted on such foolish and nonsensical crap.

    How about the "911 tax" on phone service (to pay for 911 services locally?
    Gambling taxes too......

    Other than that, it looked pretty complete, at least untill the politicians get inventive. But, you did miss all of the foreign taxes.....LOL

    If you have to pay tax when you buy Viagra I guess that one would have to call that a "Sex Tax".
