Tax Problems with Lindens:

Two years ago, I blogged about an IRS proposal to tax in-game profits, in games like WoW and Second Life. I haven't heard much about this trial balloon lately, and I hope it's good and dead, because there's no way to tax such gains, or even estimate their fungible value, fairly. But there is hope ... for me at least. A spammer found my entry and posted a comment beginning "You need us if you have any of these tax problems:". (I've deleted the comment, don't go looking for it.)
