Wow, yeah thats a lot in tax. With coupons, I understand that some states are post coupon and some, like florida go on your total before coupons. However, I have never hear of tax being charge on a before savings card price because they are only liable to pay tax on the final amount the consumer pays. Either way, let me know what they say. I'm curious now.

Edit: I saw your other post about coupons at ace. Some states do charge tax before coupons. At the bottom of the coupon in the remittance area, there is a disclosure that the consumer pays tax. I know how it feels to be in a pre-coupon state. Sometimes I want to click my heels 3 times and go to another state where tax is post coupon

I think (as noted in the other post before) that since they are basically giving you what would normally be a mail in rebate, that is why they charge the tax on the full price.

After all, if you bought an item at a store for $4.99 and there was a Try me Free sticker on it that you could mail in and get the $4.99 back, you'd expect to pay the tax on the $4.99 at the store, and you wouldn't expect the company to send you the tax amount back as part of the rebate, at least not ususally.

I supposed one way to think of it - the tax you pay is offset by what you would have spent in postage for the rebates and the time you don't have to spend filling out forms, cutting bar codes, circling prices on receipts etc.

What state do you live in? Louisiana and California have laws that require tax payments on the full amount.

I work in a call center where we take national orders for cell phones. Customers in those two states are frequently frustrated with taxes. They have to pay a big tax even when they get a phone that is free after discounts. It is not up to the retailer.
