    Why is there tax on Applications?

    I just bought notecard defense for $2.99. I had $4.04. I'm now down to $0.84 because of tax. I don't really think there should be tax on applications. If there's no tax on music, why apps?

    What makes you think APPLE gets the money from the Tax? Last I remembered, Tax is issued by the Government.

    Tax is mandatory. There's nothing you can do about it, and nothing they can.

    Also another note: There IS Tax on Music and other stuff you get from the Internet. If you live in New York and some other states.

    Lol last time I looked apple wasn't in charge of the United States... Tax goes to the government. What have you thought it has been all your life, some nice way for people to make a little extra money on their product lol?
