Ukraine says citizens don’t need to declare captured Russian tanks or guns on their taxes

Mar 2nd

Tax season is a continual reminder of the theft imposed on people by their greedy, power-hungry political class.

But before you pack up your Gadsden flag to move so far off the grid the IRS can't even find you, celebrate this amazing tax loophole being promoted by Ukraine's anti-corruption agency:

"Have you captured a Russian tank or armored personnel carrier and are worried about how to declare it? Keep calm and continue to defend the Motherland!" read a statement from the Ukrainian National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) seen by Interfax Ukraine.

"There is no need to declare the captured Russian tanks and other equipment because the cost of this does not exceed 100 living wages (UAH 248,100)," the agency explained. The sum equates to about $8,300.

I absolutely love it.

And it's actually real.

War is hell, and what's happening in Ukraine is horrible.

That being said, getting to ride around in one of these bad boys tax-free for the rest of your life after repelling the Russian invaders sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me!

On the NACP's website, a document dated Monday said that the seizure of tanks or equipment would instead be considered a "manifestation of the unity and cohesion of the Ukrainian people in the fight against invaders" and will not be taxable.

"Thanks to the courage and victory of the defenders of the Ukrainian state, hostile military equipment, weapons, and other armor arrive as scrap. It is impossible to evaluate such objects in accordance with the Law of Ukraine," read the NACP's guidelines.

Hey, U.S. government: Remember how the 2nd Amendment says our right to bear arms shall not be infringed?

And remember how private citizens could own cannons and war frigates back in the day?

And remember how all the arguments for gun confiscation went out the window the moment we saw Russia invade Ukraine and every leftist on the block was cheering on regular people for using full-auto AKs and RPGs?

Yeah, I'd like to know when we are repealing the National Firearms Act and unconstitutional state laws so I can easily purchase a brand-new, tax-free, and functional M1 Abrams to park in my garage!
