Yes, I caught this anomaly too.

You are a hawk eye, for sure.

I disagree that their HOURS are
"taxable income when traded for
professional goods or services."

They obviously failed to understand
the true definition of "income"
(i.e. a profit or gain).  See,
in particular, Eisner v. Macomber,
252 U.S. 189.
