I just checked my email and apparently some kind of tax error occurred last year (strangely just before the nasty psn hack). Anyway they are refunding your money back on your account. Of course there is no exact date but it says they will get it by march 31st. Just wanted to let everyone about free money…kinda. Probably gonna save mine for some skyrim or me3 dlc

Dear Sony Entertainment Network account holder,

After performing routine system maintenance, Sony Entertainment Network sales tax records were mistakenly modified and some customer’s accounts were charged sales tax in error.

Between November 18, 2010, and April 11, 2011, one or more transactions originating from your account was charged sales tax in error. Correcting this, we will refund the errant charges back to your account in the amount of $9.24 via your Sony Entertainment Network wallet. This will appear in your transaction history as a one-time inclusive credit.

We are diligently working to correct this error and will have your account refunded by March 31, 2012. If you do not see the credit to your account by March 31, 2012, or if you have further questions please contact our customer service department at: 

here is the E-mail 

Found a couple sites about it and a forum on neogaf of plenty of people who have gotten their refund

Probably had to spend some money in order to get a refund. Therefore, I don't think I'll expect an email regarding that from them.

Scam emails started going out not too long ago from the PSN hack. I wouldn't trust any of that shit.

Just send them your pin number, that's the only thing to do here.
