Other questions about "Consumption"

Q: The consumption tax is up by 2% this fall. Increasingly we need to manage the family budget well. does this sound natural?
A: The consumption tax is up by 2% this fall. More and more, we need to manage the family budget.
Well is understood. Increasingly is a bit formal. You could say, “More and more we need to limit family spending.” This obviously says something slightly different. If the fact that there is a budget is important then you would stick with how you said it.
Q: When the consumption tax goes up to 10% this October, the price including tax should be a nice round number. You will find that a seller that doesn't sell at a nice round number price is a bad seller that wants to take advantage of this opportunity to raise their prices even a little. does this sound natural?
A:
No problem.
Yes, it was okay not to use the future tense, since in this situation it is a general fact or truth (the amendment of the tax, and its effect on the prices), so using the present simple tense is appropriate, and you’ve already used ‘when’ and a time in the first sentence which already conveys the future event meaning.

As I pointed out, you did excellent in terms of structure, grammar and wording, but it was too word for word, that’s it.

Using generic terms like ‘seller’ and ‘bad’ in such context isn’t the natural way of description.
Usually a seller is more of an individual than a shop or a business. Also, bad in this context where more descriptive words are fitting, is better avoided, as it shows a weakness in basic vocabulary, and makes it sound unnatural.

For example:
“Watching the wheels turn made my head feel not good”, is good grammar wise, but if someone says that in front of a native, they’ll immediately respond:
“You mean you felt dizzy?”

Similarly saying ‘bad seller’, will prompt the response ‘you mean cheater?’.

‘You will find’ doesn’t really fit the context here, as it is used to describe a matter of realization of an unknown fact, which does not apply here, as it is a known fact that price manipulators are cheaters, but it is a matter of coming across one (Finding one).

Otherwise, you are on the road to being perfectly like a native. 😊
Q: They might propose cutting the consumption tax rates to 5% (from the current 8%)? No way. does this sound natural?

Q: I don't think it is necessary to raise consumption tax now. We haven't felt recovery of economy. does this sound natural?
A: It doesn’t feel like the economy’s recovered yet.

または

Q: consumption and exportation have the same meaning?
