It's a US sale so tax is supposed to be collected. And if not you are legally bound to declare it end of year. Oh yeah that's right no one does that. Except me
GOOD for you
tell that to thousands of BHphoto buyers, Adorama buyers who uses it for leisure
and all other online sellers, even my local store here do NO-SALES-TAX promotions to attract buyers
during mothers day, fathers day, 4th of july sales
Yes, Canon is a US seller, so does BH, Adorama
- and when one sells it for 100 refurb plus tax, $110 total and the other sells it for 120 New - with BOX, manuals and all, even 4% rebate points - you got the idea
... and one ships it with free expedited Shipping!!!!
this is NOT about you or me, this is not about taxes either.
this is about COST and VALUE and the idea of buying refurb.
total cost to own from buying NEW vs Refurb and the VALUE between the two.
THEY (the readers) can also BUY USED
whether through craigslist, ebay, BH used dept. KEH... etc or even buying from their friends.... and Im sure they will get the retail BOX too
even a free filter
and YES, no tax
