I've been using the Playstation Store to buy dlc and games for a couple years now and I've always been charged tax. Today I got a $20 card from Futureshop, redeemed it and bought the Flower bundle. To my surprise it came out to exactly $9.99. No tax what so ever. So my fellow Canadians what changed? I'm not complaining but I'm a bit surprised.
No tax on Playstation Store in Canada?
@Three0neFive said:Maybe because you already paid tex on the card, they don't have to charge you on the actual PS Store? I dunno, I've never used one of those prepaid cards.
No I paid $20 for a $20 card. No tax was charged at the store.
@SpikeSpiegel: Are you in Canada as well?
Nah, I'm from the U.S.
They charge tax based on whether your State has sales tax or not. Seems a little weird to me.
Not entirely. A company in Oregon is under no obligation to collect tax for customers they are serving over the internet or mail in, say, California. One state has no jurisdiction over another nor the business conducted within. However, a company from Oregon with a physical presence in California will be required to collect tax from California residents, because of that physical business presence.
