    I can't remember being charged tax.. I already pay shitloads of taxes to the government, so it wouldn't make much difference anyways...

    Yeah this was state mandated thing where they would charge you for digital content downloads. It wasn't that long ago if I remember correctly when they started doing this. However this is only for certain states in the U.S. and not all. My state was doing it, so all I had to do was change my home address to California or some other state that won't get me taxed, then the tax will not be charged at the PS Store checkout.

    I'm not aware if taxes are gone now in all states after the PSN blackout, or if they are changing it again.

    Personally, any tax on a digital item is total bull$*!% because it is not a physical item like games, beer, pizza, cigarettes, groceries, or clothes.

    I remember my first time using the psn..and asking the clerk how it works and he goes "Ok so we don't charge tax on psn cards..BUT when you do purchase a game..they will charge you a tax"..and recently (past few months) I've noticed a no tax on the psn store..which rules. Too bad pre paid phone cards dont work that way as well! But where I live its a 5% GST tax. It's really nice spending 50 dollars..and getting my full $50 worth (instead of a tax haha)

    Think its time we closed this thread.

    Some sates never charged sales taxes in the first place. Second of all they stopped charging sales tax world wide since the outage. Mod ?!?! Please close.

    I knew i wasn't crazy! I swore the 1st card I bought from gamestop was charged sales tax, then when I made my online purchase I was charged again! That's when I started buying my cards on military installations, no sales tax! Man, I thought I was losing my mind on that one, lol. It's nice to see no sales tax in the store now, my money gets me even more games now!

    I noticed this when the Welcome Back program started. I haven't been taxed on anything since.
