In the States it is my understanding that their are orthodox religions that prohibit their followers {congregations) from paying taxes. It's against their
religion.
does this occur in SXM. just curious.

Are you serious? I don't think that would go over very well! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" />

If that were true then the country would be a LOT more religious <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

You don't pay the TS tax if you are renting instead of timesharing....

That does it, I'm switching my membership from "Our Lady of Perpetual Taxation" to another parish.

Don't think that is what the OP is referring to.

Yeah, that doesn't happen in the states. Those that try that are usually sent to jail to find some religion.

I just wonder how this person would get to the island with out paying tax? Legally.

I am laughing, in fact I almost spit up my breakfast salad!

Only island I can think of they could get into might be Rikers Island. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" />
