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.
