    I searched and could not find another post on this, but i think apple is very sneeky. they charge tax on the games. I made 4 purchases and it equaled 33.92. they made me pay 2.12 in tax. i think it should state how much tax you will pay on the game page.

    Do stores provide you with how much their products will cost including tax? No.

    there shouldnt be tax in the first place. if i buy software from buy.com, i pay nothing but the price of the software because it comes from another state. its the same with any online purchase, if it comes from another state/country there is no tax. just another way that apple is trying to make a quick buck...

    Apple isn't making a "quick buck" off tax, because the tax would be sent to the government.

    If Apple was keeping the tax money they earned, that would be illegal.

    What Tax are you talking about? Do you live in New York? Because New York is the only state in the United States that Taxes internet Purchases.

    By the Way. I haven't been taxed for my Various purchases:

    I like how you have your images with that distinct font of yours.

    Yeah, it's only taxed in some areas?
