So I decided to order a 32gb iPhone 4 refurb. I live in California so tax is hefty around 9.75%. It's 199.00, 14.95 for shipping, and $66+ for TAX? Is that right? I don't get why tax is so much.

Thats not right at all. The tax figure you quoted of 9.75% (im in the uk so don't know if there are any additional charges) should bring tax out at a max to around $20

Think you may have to read the invoice again!

It looks to me that you're being charged tax on the unsubsidized price. You did say it's from ATT so there's a contract involved, right?

YMMV

Tax should only be $19.40. I would question that for sure.

It's right then, nobody cheated you, I read an article about it when the iPhone4 first came out.

Totally forgot about this, I remember now that I researched this before last year when I got billed 260 dollars in tax last year for 4 phones LOL. Oh well, I'm VERY happy to be back. Phone is coming tomorrow at 3 P.M. :)
