This is funny. I seem to recall that back in the day, France assessed life style taxes for the same reasons. If you kept a yacht, a racehorse, a mistress, you were taxed accordingly. They are famous cheats, too. I wonder if they still do it in some form?
The agency said in an Aug. 16 statement that it found an erotic club in northeast Italy that not only lacked a license, all 32 of its lap dancers “declared, in unison, that they were putting on their first performance,” and hadn’t had the time to get their working papers.
“In Capri, we found a person on a luxury yacht who was officially listed as having no assets and in need of welfare,” Magistro said. “First he said he didn’t know who the boat belonged to, then, after checking, we discovered he led a life of luxury and owned several properties, none of them declared.”
I've got a feeling I shouldn't admit to finding it funny
