Question: iTunes 2 cent tax overcharge
On 03/16/2018 I purchased 7 songs from iTunes Store, listed at $1.29 each and my account was charged $9.75, $1.39 for each song and a mysterious extra 2 cents.
7 x 1.29 = $9.03
7 x 1.39 = $9.73
In chat support, Advisor said same thing listed in this thread (Apple iTunes overcharging on sales tax.) namely that it was my state's digital sales tax. State sales tax explains the extra .10 per song, but I pushed back on the .02. After a very long wait for chat response, Advisor said...
The total amount of the songs you have purchased is 9.75 USD with tax included The total amount of the tax added here is 0.72. So thats 25.00-9.75 = 15.25. There’s another .02 added here. Since a receipts hasn’t been generated we can’t tell what the other .02 added here. I would suggest contacting your tax office regarding the additional .02 with how your tax are calculated and being added to your digital items.
The extra 2 cents isn't from tax. What's going on Apple???
