Charged over 10% in taxes

Recommended Posts

Hi I bought about $65 of stuff from here about 1-2 weeks ago. I was buying things for myself and my cousin. When I was calculating the amount she owes me, I couldn't get the same total as my statement. So I took the subtotal (Sub Total: $65.77) and multiplied it by 8.5% and it came out to $5.60. The tax I got charged was $6.68 which is actually about 10.1%. ($65.77 x 10.1% = $6.64)

Just wondering... Did anyone else get over charged for taxes? And to whomever is in charge.. why are we overcharged for taxes? BTW... shipping is REALLY expensive. I live in San Francisco and the items were shipped from Oakland. You would think that shipping is cheaper when you're a bridge away. :/

What the freak!! You'd think that they would put shipping FIRST if they were going to tax you on it. Plus... I have never known any other company to tax you on shipping.

Wow, taxed shipping? That's new to me.

lol at $13 shipping. Don't they ship from Oakland? That's why I'm gonna wait till I need A LOT of stuff before I will buy again.

Yeah, they ship from Oakland. I wonder if we can just pick up from Oakland. That way I don't have to pay for shipping and the tax ON the shipping. I don't like giving the government more money than I have to (taxes goes to the government anyways).

I pay taxes on shipping so I need to charge for it. I actually didn't do this for a long time by accident until my accountant saw how much money we were losing. Sorry for the confusion on that. I charge as closely to the penny as I can for shipping, so I make no money from shipping whatsoever. More precisely, I used to lose money, and now I make no money.

Hi Lilricegrl87,

Unfortunately our shipping facility is not setup to accept pick-up orders at this time. :( I'm sorry about the inconvenience. Thank you for asking!

Cheers,

Kory
