Token: US Tax
Tax tokens come from States with sales tax and sharp pencils. They have been used over the years to account for the finicky problem of levying sales tax on small purchases. It the tax is 3 percent, and the purchase is 10 cents, how does a merchant collect .03 cents in sales tax? Easy -- use tax tokens.
