Wow. And we complain about high taxes in the US!
Romanian-born Alina Percea, 18, auctioned off her virginity to an Italian businessman (for only $18,000!) and now she's facing some pretty stiff taxes in Germany where she goes to school — 50 percent straight away because they're deeming her act prostitution (legal there) and then a 19 percent VAT (value added tax) because she earned her money so quickly! (Some Germans are taxed up to 45 percent of their incomes.)
She was hoping to get $100,000, but claims that all in all she's happy with the outcome, and may date the Italian guy for free after this. Hardly seems worth it, if you asked me! Natalie Dylan had a better idea. . .
