Officially, income from theft is supposed to be reported on your return. How do they go about enforcing that?

It's simple, really.

You pay your rent in dollars. You're paid in dollars. Chips are only used as a "shadow currency" in the Twilight nightlife. You can't quit your job because you can't pay your rent in poker chips. Just like real life.

I don't know about that, but I remember reading about a tax on illegal drugs before.

Apparently, in some states you could buy some kind of stickers or something anonymously, then stick them on your drugs. If you were busted, and your junk didn't have the proper sticker, you'd be subject to additional fines and/or jail time. Awesome, huh?

They'll only take dollars for chips. Business, y'know?

I think the latest issue of Mental Floss mentioned that...


And, MrAndersonMan: after all the time you've spent beating up guards and gamblers, do you really think they'll even let you get near the cashier's window?

Besides, the casino is run by the mob. The last thing they want is heroes being able to quit their job and spend more time busting heads.

You can't exchange your chips for dollars because the casino doesn't actually exist.
