Well there's of course back taxes charged for a period of ~ 3 years or
more, plus interest and late payment penalties on those back taxes

A Cisco ZX GBIC produces a max of 4.77 dBm (or less than 4mw).  4mw

However, since the customer must beam back light as part of the exchange
then you must track the number of pulses in both directions and
determine the difference.  Some days the customer gets more energy and
some days it doesn't.  That should affect the tax.
