Beware California's hidden cell phone tax - SFGate http://www.boe.ca.gov/pdf/pub120.pdf As a Californian, I did not realize this until I went in to a local BB today to price out a new Droid, the the very attractive sales person informed me about this tax. This means that there is about a 25% tax relative to the register sales price ($199) of the phone. She was saying that it is about $50 in CA Sales Tax alone! :sad: This is because they are required to charge sales tax (9.750 % where I live in CA) based upon the original price of the phone ($599) ! I told her that I would have to send a letter to Mr. "Kali-fornia" Govern-ator himself! :cus: Needless to say, I do not have a Droid yet. I wonder if you order this out of state if this tax still applies??? So check your sales receipt if you live in California and you recently bought a Droid phone!!!! An write your congress man or woman and remind them that 2010 is an election year for them!
