Romanian witches escape the curse of taxes

Politicians in Romania vote down law to tax witches and fortune tellers for fear of being cursed

IN AN UNFORESEEN move, Romanian senators have voted down a new law that would have forced fortune tellers and witches to pay tax on their activities.

Members of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party in Romania had drafted new rules that would require witches and fortune tellers to produce receipts and be held liable for any wrong predictions, reported the Telegraph.

However, the law failed to pass as politicians feared they would be cursed if they voted for the changes.
