Prostitutes pay taxes too

Me and my carpool buddies were talking about how can some illegal immigrants managed to pay income taxes, and one of them told us this:

"What so amazing? Even prostitutes pay taxes!"

We looked at him like he was crazy.

He insisted that it was true. To prove that, he immediately called his wife to have the confirmation about this issue. His wife confirmed this as a fact, and he will research more and tell us what he found.

While waiting for his research finding, I found this article. It seems that prostitution is not illegal in France and they do pay taxes.
