As long as there is no crazy spending, I think you can get away with not paying anything.

I agree with arriemoller, paying tax is a luxury problem. People claiming to be the new wealthy elite because they bought some extremely speculative currency should not be whining about the tax that comes with it.

Those of you who don't like your governments/countrys, regardless of where you live, why don't you move somewhere else?
There must be some other country somewhere that you like better.
Personally I don't mind paying tax (within reason) since it pays for my insulin, Enbrel, and my 50% disability pension.
I'm not saying I love my government, on the contrary, I voted on a opposition party. But from there to refuse paying tax is a bit too long step.

I guess that there is a middle way. Paying 0% taxes might be off the question, but so it is to pay +50%. And yes, +50% is something quite normal for the higher ranges of income in Europe.

I agree, that's why I wrote "within reason" But the tax you pay when you sell bitcoins or any other investment is 30% where I live. A bit on the high side, but I can live with it.
And like Lewis 2 wrote,  if you only cash in smaller amounts or simply use them for everyday shopping with your Master card (that you got through okpay) you will most likely go under the radar.

Jesus don't pay taxes.  This defeats the purpose of bitcoin!

Bitcoin is a currency and an investment.  In order to use it, you have to pay taxes.  As your Jesus said "Render unto Ceaser..."

The money in Jesus's time was coined by Caesar. Bitcoin is coined by the miners. If Jesus had bitcoins, he would say, "Render unto the miners what is the miners." AKA- Pay your transaction fees, damn it!

If we are the new wealthy elite we will be able to find all of the legal loop holes necessary to pay as little tax as possible.   Grin

I still love this thread more than all the others.

Bitcoin's true purpose alluded-to in Satoshi's message on the Genesis Block:
"The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks"

Hey,  I will give to "Ceasar" the amount I am legally obligated too.  Plus I will definitely tithe at least 10% and will happy to do so.  Plus the tithe will help lower my taxes too!  Grin

What is so un-Christian about that?

That said, I will admit that tax evasion is a temptation!  I would be a little more content paying taxes if I felt that I was "proud to be an American" but unfortunately there are things about the US that really tick me off.  But it is still not wise to avoid paying them, as tempting as it may be.

After all this months not really keeping an eye on BTC or the forum at all, I kept the subject of this thread in the back of my mind and reminded it from time to time.

If we are the new elite. Then which one of us will be the president of the world?

It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

Not necessary to rule. What about to lead?

Cheesy As i understand correctly those who want to be a president, should not be, but those who are capable and appropriate does not want to be a president. Paragraph 22.

To be more precise, an extract from Zaphod Beeblebrox wikipedi article:
Quote
He was briefly the President of the Galaxy (a role that involves no power whatsoever, and merely requires the incumbent to attract attention so no one wonders who's really in charge, a role for which Zaphod was perfectly suited).
