And if they don't take your money?

If they say, "No, thanks, go spend it next door?"

What do they "owe" you then?

Agreed. Anything else would be fraud. But that has nothing to do with your claim that "The customer is always right."

The customer is not always right.

The government is not a business.

Obviously nothing. As its been said here, people can be refused service.

But if you do make money from them you owe them. The government money from me called taxes therefore the government owes me.

The point is that the government owes me since it makes money from me.
