Oooh, but why would only European landlords pay VAT? Wouldn't everyone who runs that as a business IRL have to pay that, including Americans? I mean, I know there are different % of VAT throughout the American states but in Europe too. 

Okay, forget that, I just looked at a US map with the sales tax shown for each state, that's definitely a disadvantage for Europeans then.

If you are complaining about having to pay VAT for Second Life like any other good or service, then don't brag about your free health care service and free education which you have in your European country BECAUSE of VAT, which Americans don't have, ok? And I'm not entirely sure that the socialism many idealize is achievable in America in the way they imagine, anyway. It does better in small countries and not big ones like Russia.

Taxes vary all over here -- these are sales taxes, and not VAT exactly -- and some of us shop in New Jersey from New York to try to get better deals, although the transportation back with all those groceries then has to be added in.

Some Internet businesses like Amazon charge you your state's sales tax because states require they do that. Linden Lab does not charge a sales tax but essentially, they build it into their price because they have to pay taxes in their state like everyone else

To answer the question: I'm not in the homestead business and don't want to be; I have only one homestead and its full with long-term tenants.

It's $79 at the grandfathered price, so I want to make sure that I get at least that $79 (previously $95), or divided into 3 as in my case. I have to, because I have to pay tier. And facturing in content costs and occupancy, many would have to charge more than tier to break even.
