    Apple.com

    I went to the bank and deposited $300 into the account. I am ready to order, but all I have is $300 in my account. I dont think Apple would charge tax ( I never pay any tax when ordering online.) Are there any authorization fees or any other thing like that which would make my order amount go over $300? I dont want to go halfway in and realize they will charge me some more. If so, I will head back to the bank right now.

    :apple:
    Also, please confirm that the actual price is $300 for the 32GB and not $400 with some type of rebate.

    You live in NYC? You're going to pay taxes.

    As for pricing - it all depends on if you're a new customer, upgrade ready, etc.

    Since we're just nerds who don't understand your questions - you should just research this yourself and not rely on us.

    It is whatever it says it is online, Apple does not do rebates on this sorta thing. AT&T offers an availability check which will tell you what samcraig was talking about.

    As for violating state laws, check here and here.

    If you are really this concerned calling Apple would be the best option.

    Okay, lets start from the beginning.

    - Where are you from?
    - What is your local tax rate?
    - Are you a new customer?
    - if not:
    - What is your upgrade eligibility?

    Ok. Look - I don't care if you're from the 7th moon of jupiter. You're going to pay tax.

    But based on your history of posting - I also know you don't really care about what's legal and not legal let alone your credit rating.

    So please - go ahead. Just stop spamming the message boards with your questions which, if you had half the brain you think you do, would be easy to find out on your own.

    If there is an Apple Store in your state, you will be charged tax.

    MacRumors doesn't condone evading tax. Many people do not know this or perhaps they look the other way, but anything you order online (if you are in a state that charges tax) is your responsibility for paying taxes on, just because the retailer does not charge tax, does not mean you are "off the hook."

    He's posted (look at his history). In one thread he seeks to buy a cheaper version of the ipod touch by buying the iphone and breaking the contract/law

    In another he flat out asks what would happen if couldn't afford the payments to att

    In another he claims he went to the apple store and got annoyed that no one would jailbreak his phone

    He's a troll. And if he isn't - he's just plan mentally deficient

    Yes, my point was that is illegal, you are required by law to report these taxes, see my post above.]


    This is what happens when you go around telling people to read the rules in every place you feel when it is unnecessary. You get the book thrown in your face, but to each his own.

    Assuming you are living in New York and incapable of viewing the two other threads above, how about this.

    And where we are going is going to be a bunch of users being a pain for some unknown reason.

    AppleNewYork,

    I believe you are simply trolling for trouble here ... REGARDLESS, I am trying to help you, please reference post number 6 above.

    Here is the law.

    HELLO

    Funny how you mention Amazon, btw, just so you understand this:

    (you ready?)

    JUST BECAUSE THE COURT DISMISSED THE CASE DOES NOT EXCUSE THE LAW AS POSTED ABOVE

    Where are you. Unless you are in a state that has no tax, i.e. Delaware, you are supposed to pay respective sales tax.

    No problem. I paid it anyway. I had a $25 Apple Gift Card i purchased ahwile back, so that knocked down my order total. But i still paid tax... No problem....

    Rec. a good case. Please post links and pros/cons. Two posters could do this.
