eBay charged me 8% New York state sales tax on an item I purchased from Germany. Is that correct or even legal? I’ve searched various forums but have not found an answer.
Writing to you regarding the eBay catalogue. You know, the catalogue that is supposed to make things clearer for the buyer, end confusion, standardize the item offered for sale, etc. So when people are shopping, they know EXACTLY what they are buying or bidding on. For a search for a Zebra label printer, model ZP500:
As you scroll down through the offerings, you see eBay’s insertions such as:
“2 new & refurbished from $137.00”
AND “6 new & refurbished from $132.00”
AND “3 new & refurbished from $179.00”
This is for the exact same model printer! Glad they cleared that up.
