Ohh I see what you're saying. Yeah you might be right on that. For what it's worth, i'm in Florida which is similar sales tax to Mass (iirc) and they took my $2099 offer.Right, but the distributor is still paying sales tax if your state requires them to, so it comes off the price they're getting for the TV if I'm understanding this correctly. In my case, Massachusetts would still charge them the 6.25% tax, which means a $2,000 sale price only nets them $1,875 shipped for the TV.
Basically, if a reseller sees my sales tax rate on the back end of the offer, they may not be willing to go as low for me as they would for someone who lives in New Hampshire and would cost them nothing for sales tax.
Am I wrong in thinking that?
