COMC........Sales Tax :(

Just added some credit to my COMC account and noticed they are charging sales tax now when you do this. Damn, I thought the Canadian government was bad....I use a NY shipping address so it was 8%. I figured out a work around for now. o:)

    I buy a lot of stuff on ebay from COMC. They always make sure to send it in a plastic sleeve, brand new top loader, and plastic little team bag. Nice and neat every time. Never an auction, always buy it now.

    A COMC AUCTION= no such thing.

    It's not a COMC thing; it's a new regulation that kicked in relatively recently for not all, but some States. You'll notice that if you are not a business seller on ebay, when items you sell are purchased by buyers who live in certain States, which includes Washington where COMC is, ebay will automatically add in sales tax on the invoice, and it says that ebay will collect the sales tax though it does not affect you the seller.

    Good ol' taxes. God bless America. We can sell you this card, but we'll have to break your thumbs first.

    I don't know if any other Washingtonians have curtailed their ebay budding, but I certainly have due to sales tax now being automatically charged. We have 10 percent sales tax which often times pushes the closing price on a card above VCP. I know 10 bucks on a $100 purchase doesn't seem like much, but it has turned me away from bidding.

    10% is nothing, try 13% in the Great White North. Was 15% several years back. We have to fund our idiot Prime Minister Trudeau's open borders. We let ISIS fighters back in because they were Canadian citizens. When asked about Canada's deficit, he said "the Budget will balance itself." Now we have our "Carbon Tax" on anything from gas to Natural Gas to Electricity. The carbon tax just added another 4.3cents/liter CDN (which would be about .12cents/gallon un USD). In 2 years it will be up to .11cents/liter. Our gas is mostly tax already. Oh and we are paying 13% Sales Tax on the Carbon Tax just to add insult to injury.

    To keep it card related, the Carbon Tax doesn't apply to cards yet....

    The state sales tax in Washington is 6.5%. Cities and counties add on their own taxes and they vary. The total rate in Spokane, where I live, is 8.8%.

    10.2 percent in Seattle and that's my address!

    Sorry to hear about my friends to the north getting hammered. Contrary to the news Seattle is not a “dieing” city. Please don’t move to Oregon 😬

    No state income tax so I'm staying. I've got a tax mule in Oregon for big purchase items :D

    I went to a show this past October here in Massachusetts and a NY Dealer was there and after I decided to put together a few cards to buy he started talking about how he had to add sales tax, I walked away while he was still talking.
