How much would an ipad mini cost after tax? if i bought one in California? im out of the country right now and i dont remember the tax rate, i havent been home for a year (studying abroad) but my cousin is going home for the holiday, i was wondering how much would it be after tax so i can give her the money to buy me one. And would it be cheaper to order it online and wait two weeks to avoid the tax? or would it be better to get it at the store and pay retail+tax price?
