  1. Why is there a TurboTax add on your little graphic?  Is someone forgetting to disclose something?

  2. USD transaction?  Like sales tax automatically added to my purchase, income tax automatically taken out of my pay, and interest or capital gains reported to the IRS every year?  I think what you mean is that BitCoins are covered under tax law as bartering or tips and thus up to the individual to declare (under penalty of law, if they catch you).  But, certainly, there is a BIG difference.  Unless of course you really believe that people voluntarily do pay sales tax on things they sell at a garage sale, buy on Ebay or Amazon, or declare all their tips.
