Tax paid on $299 iPhone for $499 iPhone?
Hey all, sorry if this was brought up before, but I just checked my Apple Store receipt and I paid $38 for tax on my $299 16GB iPhone in San Diego, CA (7.75% tax). By my calculations, $38 of tax translates to a $499 purchase. I know the phone is $499 for non-upgradable plans, but is this right? Can they charge you more tax than the products sold? I think this is a load of crap, but you know how these companies like to nickel and dime us. Don't get me wrong, I love Apple and I don't mind paying for the new iPhone because I love it, but I just wonder if this is legal. Thanks for any comments on this, I'm surprised no one has complained online yet.
