    No more sales tax in PS Store ?

    In the past i was charged sales tax for every purchase in the PS Store. I just bought a $50 PSN card and checked out with no taxes on my games. Sales tax here is 12%. Its awesome they didnt charge me, dont get me wrong im not complaining. I just want to know if i missed something or is this some sort or system glitch.

    Well, the weird thing is that I just checked back on my receipts dating back to 2009 (yes, I have them ALL! ) I was charged Sales Tax ONLY between Nov 2010 and Jan 2011. I'm based in Wisconsin, so I don't know if it was a state mandated thing, but I don't believe it coincided with the store coming back up after the hack (well at least not for me). But why only 3 months?!

    I have never been charged sales tax on psn purchases. I guess it is where you are located that determines the tax. I live in Florida which is in the NA continent, for those that don't know.

    i myself used to be charged a tax up until recently as well. im enjoying the not being charged takes...maybe its a way for them to get people to buy digital instead of in store ya know

    I wonder if the sales tax is based on the state you reside in, for US residents. I'll have to remember to check this week.

    I dont ever remember being charged tax on my purchases even though there is a spot for it on the receipts that they email you. Though this was back in 2008-2009 so they might have changed it and changed it back in the meantime.

    There was also a short time when the Gamestop was charging tax on the PSN cards too as well but they haven't done that for quite awhile.

    I thought that never did charge sales tax. I've been buying cards since '08, and I've never had to pay a penny over.

    I can't remember ever being charged sales tax on any of my PSN purchases. However, that could be wrong as I haven't been paying much attention to them to be honest. Although, if I was, its good to know they no longer do.
