Should income from prostitution be taxed?
It is common that prostitution has become a normal business and source of income in many countries, except may be in few Muslim countries. Prostitution was traditionally women job but now men prostitutes are also coming up. They earn a lot of money as self-employed on this business. But should they be taxed?
Prostitution is not a socially accepted job. Yet, it is not only economic right as a means of survival but also a democratic right. So, governments cannot stop it with decrees or force measures. What governments can do is create other more jobs so that prostitutes have the option to move to other jobs. Therefore, both levying high tax on incomes from prostitution or stopping it through legislation is unfair!!
