★ TALKS OF $ALES TAX ★

Postby GOLTZBORG » Mon Aug 22, 2022 10:29 am


GLOBAL NEWS NETWORK: GNN
BREAKING NEWS


The Imperial Government of Goltzborg has mandated that from this time forward.....
when a citizen / customer returns a purchase to a retailer and gets a refund on their merchandise,
the sales tax that was applied at the time of the initial purchase will NOT be refunded to the customer;
which is due to the fact that said sales tax has already been received by the levels of government that
receive funding from sales taxes.

The upside of this new mandate, is the fact that it should make shoppers a bit more diligent whenever
they go to a store to spend their hard-earned-money.

GOVERNMENT APP (for) RETAIL PURCHASES: G.A.R.P.

Postby GOLTZBORG » Wed Aug 24, 2022 9:01 am


GLOBAL NEWS NETWORK
GNN

BREAKING NEWS

Late last night Comrade Chairman Smirnoff signed Executive Order XO-102122,
which created a new government app, which will be under the authority of the
Ministry Of Commerce ( M.O.C. ).

The new government app has been designated as G.A.R.P.
( Government App (for) Retail Purchases ).

The GARP Program will go into effective on January 1 of next year;
and will be voluntary for all citizens 19 years of age and older.

In essence, the GARP Program gives all retail consumers that use the app,
an automatic discount of 5% on all non-food and non-drug purchases;
and an automatic discount of 10% on all food and drug purchases.

It is assumed that if the GARP Program proves to be successful, that the Imperial Government
may change the Executive Order from voluntary to mandatory for all retail purchases by consumers.

The primary issue against the GARP Program is the fact that the government now has the ability to
know who buys what, when, and where; however, the Minister of the Ministry Of Commerce ( M.O.C. )
has assured the public that such is NOT the reason for establishing GARP, and that the primary reason
to establish the GARP Program was to give the citizen-consumers a bit more of their hard earned money
back into their billfolds and pocketbooks.

CREMATION BY CRYOGENICS OR FURNACE: FREEZER OR FIRE ?!!?

The Imperial Government of Goltzborg has clarified its mandate regarding cremation;
whereby, any citizen within the Eurasian Federation can request that he or she be
cremated by means of fire within a furnace ( which is traditional and customary ), or be cremated
by means of cryogenics, which suspends a person in a pool of liquid nitrogen, and when removed
the person's body is simply pulverized into an extremely fine powder when pressure is applied.

Sounds like a great idea......thanks. :)

I'm going to also stop posting as often .... probably;
which will make more room on the forums for others.

Thanks again for Your helpful advice.

You created 21 threads within the past 10 days, and you have been on NationStates (and the forum) long enough to know better. Therefore, *** GOLTZBORG, you are WARNED for Spamming ***, and I suggest that you take a look at the rules on spamming.

You can put all your national news in one thread (ideally this one, as we've merged it together for you). Also, not everything you write has to be bold and large.

If I may, I just wanted to let you know (in case you don't already) that the boards have a nifty little 'increase font size' button at the top right, above the logout button. Click it twice to get the largest size - clicking three times will take you back to standard size. (Grabbed the best screenshot I could if you need a reference:)

I hope that makes the forums more visible for you if it doesn't already.
