It's a tax. It doesn't matter if you agreed to it or if you even knew about it at the time.

Why the fuck are tards downvoting this. Its 100% correct.

Because it is in effect, an ex post facto violation of an already agreed upon and executed contract. Altering the details of a contract after the fact without representation, be it by either of the agreeing participants or by the government, invalidates the contract. An individual who purchases an item without tax and is later taxed after the fact, may not have purchased that item if the situation was as now presented.

It obviously will not hold up in court even if it's a government tax.

It is the state's job to go after taxes owed from past years, not a store.

You're right. No taxes are consented. That's the point of a tax. It's taken at the point of a gun.

Presence in a jurisdiction is tacit consent.
