The last iPhone I bought Apple charged me tax on the retail price ($599.)of the phone instead of what I bought it for ($199.)has anyone noticed what they've been charged
It burns my britches that it's even legal to do that

It is in some states/provinces.....thus it depends on where you live.

I'm in Washington, so we only pay on the subsidized price.

Not all stores do that. I bought my last phone at SAMs club, they only tax the selling price, not the full price. I think Walmart is the same

If you are in Rhode Island or Cali, this is the way they roll! I got that rude awakening when I got my iPhone 4

I am in Iowa now. Thank goodness they did the tax on Iowa State 6%. In Linn County it is 7%
