Sin tax

Apparently a New York foot-fetish model, Sarah Petterson, is trying to figure out how to describe her occupation to tax officials. Her unusual profession defies description according to the Internal Revenue Service who cannot quite understand what she does for a living. The young lady earns more than $100 an hour letting her shapely feet be ogled and stroked. She can take home up to $400 for working a foot-fetish party. However she is paid in cash common enough in the foot fetish industry. Sarah is an honest citizen and wants to pay her tax but despite plenty of advice on where to list how you earn your living on the form there seems to be nowhere for the profession of a foot-fetish model. Patterson has recently been speaking at a tax workshop at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center in New York. The workshop was sponsored by Prostitutes of New York to help those in the sex industry and allied trades become legitimate taxpayers. One wit at the meeting suggested to Ms Patterson to just m ark the form "self-employed."
