> "If you use your computer or phone to make money then you have to pay the government a computer licence fee every year don't you ?"
No I don't. There are no such laws in the US, so this is a new concept for me, that a government could forcibly take my money just because I do some paid work on my personal computer.
This isn't actually happening in Britain, is it?
You mean the Software, Hardware, & Information Technology Excise.
You don't have to pay SHITE in the US?
