So it's illegal to make a personal currency?
So would stores that offer in store credit be breaking the law?
I'm so confused.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1100729

the thing about in store credit and gift cards is that in many states they are covered by "escheat laws" and if unclaimed for a certain period of time the state takes a big cut of that money

but either way those are still based in US dollars and sales tax is still charged, and in store credits are still accounted for under GAAP in terms of USD

Of course looking at the big picture, the stores and all businesses are themselves creatures of the state, and because of this, a portion of their proceeds goes back to the state as a tribute.

They are such because they were granted a "permit" to do business so therefore the state sees them as their own to do with as they see fit, to tax, to promote or destroy as it chooses.

Of course a person or business can choose NOT to get a permit and do business without it, but then if the state learns of it the business will be destroyed and the owner will be put in jail.

So you give the state your compliance to rule over you and your affairs, or you can choose not to. If you choose the latter then you will be destroyed. THAT is what the state sees as "freedom", you have the freedom to submit or be destroyed.
