It is called a excise tax which means that the importation of good from abroad is considered as illegal if they are not produced domestically.
There are plenty of good things that can be imported from abroad, but the amount of good that can be imported is so very low that it is not even worth putting an import tax on it.
The problem is that the law does not recognize foreign goods except for the good that is not produced domestically. We call these “excise taxes.” The same way the government doesn’t recognize imported goods except for the good that is not produced domestically, so too do many government officials claim that exporting goods from the U.S. is illegal. But if that good is produced domestically, then you do not have to pay an excise tax on it.
The reason for this is that the two categories of goods (goods that are produced domestically and goods that are not) are basically two separate goods and are really not interchangeable. The goods that are not produced domestically are not taxed because if they were, the government wouldn’t have to track them and so they would disappear. But the goods that are produced domestically are taxed because they are imported by a country that does not tax goods that are produced domestically.
I’m not sure what the distinction between imported and domestic is, but the best analogy I can offer is that the best way to get a beer or a movie or a book is to go to the local store, buy it there, and bring it home. But the government does not tax those goods as long-term residents of a country that does not tax them.
It’s not a good analogy because when people bring goods to the store they pay the tax, not the store. But I’m not sure where the distinction between those two is.
Im not sure either. Im going to stick with the analogy of going to the store, buying it (or buying it and bringing it home), and bringing it home. We all have the right to the same right to a beer or a movie or a book. We all have the right to the same right to the same right to a beer or a movie or a book.
I used to think this was a bad analogy because a beer could only be imported or produced by a brewery, but that’s a myth. Imports are taxed by the consumer in the form of excise taxes. If the local brewery did not have the product in the first place, the tax would be 0. But when the local brewery does not have it, the tax is whatever the consumer pays.
The reason we have the right to the same right to the same right to a beer or a movie or a book is because we have a right to an excise tax. An excise tax is the exact opposite of a tax. If a local company did not have the product in the first place, they would pay a tax. The tax they pay is the exact opposite of the tax they would pay if they did not have the product.
