As Romania is suffering a severe economic downturn, the officials are trying to impose new taxes to raise revenues. Although the 'Witch Tax' was also a part of the proposed tax plan, the Romania senate has decidedly dropped this added tax in fear of being cursed by the fortune tellers.

The fortune tellers were to be held responsible for false predictions and had to keep their receipts so the 'Witch Tax' could be applied accordingly had the plan gone through.
