    So I want to buy a new iMac, and right now I'm on the page where is asks for the credit card type with the number and all that. But just on top of that, it shows the subtotal, then the shipping and then estimated tax. But at the tax part, it shows 0$. Is this normal? I mean I doubt I wouldn't pay tax...although it would be great:p After I enter my credit card info, will it show the total with the tax added? Or should it already be showing?

    It should show it once you've entered your shipping address. If you need to pay tax, believe me, they'll charge it. :)

    Well the shipping address is asked before the credit card info. I know I've entered the billing address, and then clicked on the box where it says something like "The billing address is the same as the shipping address". Could it be because of that? Maybe if I had just filled up both the addresses maybe I would show. I know I need to pay tax...it would be crazy if it didn't charge me any.

    The tax will show up. But it will be after everything is finalized. I don't think I saw my tax until my confirmation email.

    Yeah, I live in Canada, but there's tax here in my province...so I don't know why I wouldn't pay for 'em.

    I remember loading the cart, changing my mind, loading it again, and doing everything except checking out.......

    Then I got an email from apple.ca with a contact name, saying that when I was ready to purchase, to call the 1-800 number and he'd walk me thru it. So I did, once I'd saved the money to pay off the purchase on the Credit Card.

    Couldn't have been happier, it was easy as pie, and the total, INCLUDING TAX was given to me over the phone.

    I called on a Friday, and the next Tuesday, my Macbook was in my hot little hands, but I had to wait to power her up coz it was sooooo cold out, there was NO WAY I was risking powering up til she'd come to room temp.

    Don't worry, you'll be charged the tax(es). ;)
