Abstract: The U.S. lags behind most other countries in the pursuit of zapper software. Sales suppression catches the attention of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) only if the manipulation seriously impacts a taxpayer’s annual income. This is only to be expected. The federal government secures revenue primarily through an annual income tax. The U.S. has no broad-based transaction tax, or federal VAT.
