    No.  Money brought back from the future will not be valid.  It will be obviously counterfeit.  The depiction of Donald tRump on the $3 bill, or a William Barr rusty steel nickel, and Rudi Giuliani on shiny new 2 cent pieces will be recognized as phony and confiscated.

    The time traveler will have a tough time avoiding jail time with those objects in his possession.

    Yes, everything is taxed. In fact, it would be taxed both now and also in the future.

    In what form is his future income? Any hard currency that is dated in the future would be rejected as counterfeit.

    This ISN'T the Taxes section. Nor is it Polls. And, time travel ISN'T anything to do with actual Science.

    Strike Three.

  • Yes, he should be required to pay taxes.  He needs to pay the tax in the year it was earned.  So we may have to wait until then.  The tax rate may go up or down by then.

    Time goes in only ONE direction, forwards, because of entropy. How do I cash all those H savings bonds that my bank lost when they replaced the entire vault. After Katrina flooded the bank branch to to 4.5 feet.

    The treasury department has to reissue the bonds and the need proof my father really is dead. He died almost exactly 24 years ago.

    No, he should just be arresting for producing counterfeit currency. 

    Currency that does not exist yet cannot legally be used.

    Certainly, and an entropy tax as well.
