As the saying goes, “Nothing’s for certain in life but death and taxes,” and it looks like the witches of Romania have lost their battle to avoid paying their share:

Romania has changed its labor laws to officially recognize witchcraft as a profession, prompting one self-described witch to threaten retaliation.

The move, which went into effect Saturday, is part of the government’s drive to crack down on widespread tax evasion in a country that is in recession.

So what does one witch plan to do to show her disapproval?  She’s promising to cast a spell, of course.
