Just so you i didn't mean the bells you get like in just the single player part, but that you can work for other people in the wi-fi deal and get paid in bells.

It would be a hard tax to implement because of stuff like this. The government has started to see companies creating a business model with online games. In a way people can get around taxes because of this.

But how do you word it so that it only includes the people that are making a serious business off of it. I would say though, rest assured that your animal crossings game will most likely would not get taxed in any way. I don't want to say it won't because the government always surprises me, but I don't think there is any reason they would.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested
