I think you have to charge tax to people that live in the same state?  I have been charged tax and Im pretty sure SCEA is NOT in Hawaii lol. 
Refunds would be nice.

I've never been taxed for PSN cards? Maybe it's a Gamestop thing, I'm not to sure. Although I can show you the recipts for my PSN card's from Gamestop and every one of them says $0.00 for tax and a final total being $20.00 on the nose.

What state do you live in?  I'm in Tennessee (as is my friend).

I live in TN as well, and have never been charged tax on psn cards. I've bought them at Gamestop, Target, and Bestbuy.

I did notice that Target's website charges tax though, but they don't in store.

Where is your friend getting his cards? I'd recommend he find somewhere else, as they're ripping him off.

I don't get charged tax on the cards either, but I do on virtual items. If I buy a green ticket(.99), it comes to $1.03 off my wallet.

Indeed, Poison. Techincally online payments are only supposed to tax you if they have a physical store in the same state that you are living.

However, lately a lot of online venues have started taxing, due to laws that are trying to be passed to make ALL things taxable online. I say that's more than wrong!! Though I'm biased because I do most of my shopping online Lol

I sure hope they stopped taxing on the PSN! The tax in my area and the surrounding areas is high compared to many of the other areas ( 9%), so I think I'd like to limit any and all taxing, to the physical stores. In fact I say they should remove taxes from necessities

Are we sure they haven't just removed it "accidentally" like Chelada was joking about? Or just from certain states?

I agree.  If there is not a store in your state you should not be paying taxes on it.  One of the reasons why I do most of my shopping on Amazon is because there is no tax and I always do the free shipping.  It saves me a lot of money.
