We say Taler is taxable in the sense that if Bob sends Alice money then
the exchange sees the transfer as income.  If tax authorities ever
investigate Alice for tax evasion, then they can ask exchange if the
electronic payment from the exchange to Alice was income and it will
tell them.

In fact, if Alice trusts Bob then theoretically Bob can give her money
without it appearing as taxable income.  Alice must trust Bob because
Bob could take the money back anytime he likes.  We have not afaik
finished this feature yet though.

No.  Customers only need to install the wallet. 

Taler needs an exchange to escrow customers' funds though.  We have all
the software for an exchange done and available, but currently nobody is
running one.  We'll start one up next year I believe.
