    This may seem like a silly question, but if I purchase my powerbook with the educational discount do I get any sort of a tax break. I know that certain items such as college textbooks purchased through UConn are tax free.. Does this depend on the state your living in?.. Someone inform me :cool:

    school as an institution can get tax breaks as a non-profit.

    but educational discount is purely apple doing students a favor. so unless you don't have to pay taxes in general (like NH or DE), you have to pay the tax for educational discount.

    Actually it would depend on the state. Some states do not charge sales tax on educational purchases. I have seen this applied to textbooks mostly. There maybe states out there that extend the no tax on educational purchases to computers.

    Apple may apply the sales tax even though it is not required. At that point if the state does not collect sales tax on educational computer purchases, the user then would apply for a refund.

    right. certain entities have tax-exempt status, but that's done state by state and you have to apply and usuually use a special form. if you're just a student you're not likely to qualify, absent some special tax break specifically for students.
