Does anyone know what part of a DTV subscription is subject to tax (New York, in my case)? Equipment, programming, installation? I thought it was all leased, so what is the tax based on?
The CSR today wanted to charge me $20 for S&H, then add $10 that she called "taxes." She didn't know any additional details. If I have to call to find out more, which department should I ask for?
Delivery and handling is $19.95 plus local sales tax, so usually between 21.15-21.95...There are some states (florida,new york, tennessee, missouri, wisconsin, washington and I believe arkansas) that charge tax on the value of the installation. I have family that lives in tennessee that has told me they see a similar charge on their monthly gas/electric bills.
on your monthly bill, you won't see that charge since it is only charged on install value. You should only pay whatever your state and local taxes are, mine totals around 7% or so in my area.
