    Quoted from Whysnow:

    sorry, if this has already been brought up as I have not followed this entire thread.
    I am wondering if sales tax needs to be charged/paid on secondary sales of games?
    i.e. person #1 buys and pays for a game and is charged/pays sales tax. They then sell to person #2 (let's say NIB still for the simplicity of it all); are they also supposed to be charged/pay on that secondary sale?
    I ask for 2 reasons.
    First is there are lots of guys that act as the little distributors in their region. They buy a bunch of games for a discount from a bigger distributor and then resell.
    Second is that technically the sale from Stern to the original distributor is the first sale. We all know that distributors have to pay stern and then turn around and mark the game up before selling to the end user. The reality is that every NIB game is being sold the second time when it makes it to a home user.

    I remember in high school being taught that sales tax on commercial goods is only ever collected ONCE. (certainly there are exceptions to that rule, although I have never understood why you pay taxes on the sale of a car over and over again.) Otherwise you would have to charge sales tax at flea markets and garage sales or anywhere you bought anything.

    Now mind you, I think I was in high school like 100 years ago. or at least it seems. so take that for what its worth.

    for the jr. distributors, if they have a vendors license, they would not pay tax to the larger distributor because it would be marked as a wholesale purchase, and would have a tax exempt number, but then its up to the jr. distributor to charge sales tax on "their" sale. If they don't have a vendors license, their original purchase would NOT be tax exempt, and they would pay the larger distributor tax on their purchase of X machines.

    I used to run a small business back in the day, and at least that is how it was explained to me. I had to report all sales for the year and the taxes I collected on those sales. depending on dollar amount, sales tax was paid quarterly or monthly to the state.

    Quoted from Luckydogg420:

    Again, I disagree. I pay my taxes for every purchase I make, without complaint.
    This isn’t a new tax, you just can’t avoid it as easily as you used to.
    IMHO refusing to pay taxes is the same as not paying your government. Anyone/anything without an income won’t last. Taxes are the way your government collects money to keep the country going. Without income the government would collapse or be shutdown. Whom runs the country when nobody’s getting paid to do it? The military? They want your money too. How about the state? Nope. They also want your money to stay a float. Municipalities? Same.
    You might not like my socialist view, that’s ok you don’t have to like me, or my view, or my country. But the fact is that if everything is tax free then the world wouldn’t work.
    America’s #1 export is debt to China. If taxes don’t pay for that what will?

    I don't think the issue is American's don't want to pay our taxes, or support our government, the issue is our government seems to want more and more of our hard earned money via taxes, yet they seem to waste more and more or spend it on what whoever is in charge wants, and not whats best for the American people.

    as for the rates themselves or the amount Americans pay vs. what Canadians pay, you cant compare the two, our countries are very different.
