    Hi,

    My cousin is going to New York in three weeks, and I'd like him to get me a new iPod Video and a $15 Gift Card. That's $349 and $15 = $364
    So is that how much I need to give him? or do i need to add tax onto that total?

    Thanks for any advice.

    I'm not from NY, but I'm fairly sure he'll automatically be charged NY sate tax on top of that. So, $364 + whatever NY sales tax is.

    :edit: Here's a link to NY's sales tax page. ;) A ton of info there.

    And if you know the address/ zipcode of the store where your cousin will be buying from and wanna calculate the tax in advance, use this page.

    Those prices don't include tax. Tax in NY is 8.8%

    Your cousin will be charged VAT on top of that unless he sneaks it back into Scotland.
