Re: oil filter silencer BATFE registered
What you just said - "Federal law states that anyone who makes, buys or sells a silencer has to pay a $200 tax" - is wrong. If I make one, then I have to pay a tax. If I buy one, then I have to pay a tax. But I don't pay a tax for selling one. If your statement was true, there would be 400 dollars in taxes on every transfer - the 200 I pay to buy it and the 200 you pay to sell it. One 200 dollars tax on the transfer. Government don't care who pays it - the buyer or the seller - but there is just one 200 dollar tax.
