Of course, even barter is now officially required for reporting to the IRS so we can pay “appropriate” “income” tax on it. So says our “Uncle”:

Bartering is the exchange of goods or services. Usually there is no exchange of cash. An example of bartering is a plumber exchanging plumbing services for the dental services of a dentist. You must include in gross income in the year of receipt the fair market value of goods or services received from bartering.
