A bunch of baloney, in my opinion, and it is the opinion of one tax
commissioner. The "obtained by buying your product" is ridiculous, and
I strongly doubt that any court would find in support -- the consideration
is not fungible.

I am not surprised you had to get it from a cache, as it should have
been deleted. 8-)

A discount is a discount; if the proprietor chooses to give a discount
specifically on a taxable item as the promotion, they certainly may.

That all being said, it certainly illustrates why tax calculation
is so difficult.
