it's for everything.  just a different system from the VAT system europe uses.  everything is taxed at purchase.  fun part is not all things are taxed at the same rate,.. beer is taxed higher than fruit for instance.  it's always a bit of a mystery what you're going to actually pay when you buy something which is what i like about the VAT system.

Very much depends. 

Most food is not taxed in my state.  


I believe most states don't tax food unless it is prepared such as fast food or a sub that a grocery store put together by a worker at the grocery.  Fruits, veggies, etc... aren't taxed.  So prepared food is taxed but nonprepared isn't.

 

OT: Looks like a nice deal but would be a little less of a deal if someone didn't have a Target card (only 15 dollars).  So if someone didn't have Target card they would still only have to pay about $330 after tax.

Damn - you lucky ;(

I hope there is a deal like this during black friday.

So they are keeping the gift card even with the price cut, nice!



Congratz you have 3 great starter games and a great console for a very good price. Don't forget TLOU remastered;) and Bloodborne and Infamous. That's always nice about buying consoles later you have an awesome backlog.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

So with tax it amounts to $309.59.

ood deal though. Congrats.

Though I always wondered why they don't include tax in the advertised price in Murica.
Is it like that for things like fruit as well?

Because sales taxes vary from state to state, and also from city to city in some cases.  For example in New Jersey it's roughly 7% total state sales tax added on to retail price, but let's say you're shopping in New York City, then it's roughly 8.875% combined state & city sales tax added on to retail price.

And the sales tax doesn't apply (in most cases) to fruits & veggies, non-prepared foods (i.e. not at restaurants), and most clothing items.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

it's for everything.  just a different system from the VAT system europe uses.  everything is taxed at purchase.  fun part is not all things are taxed at the same rate,.. beer is taxed higher than fruit for instance.  it's always a bit of a mystery what you're going to actually pay when you buy something which is what i like about the VAT system.

Not sure how it is in your state but in Texas most foods (execpt for sodas and candy and prepared food you buy from a restaurant) don't have taxes added to them.  Personal items (shampoo, deodarant, toothpaste etc) are tax free also.

This is also true here in Texas the only food that is taxes besides alcohol is soda all prerared food bought in restaurants is taxed.  Personal items (shampoo, deodarant, tootpaste) are tax free in Texas also.

it varies.  chicago food is 2.25%.  lower than the ~10% for most everything else but still taxed.  growing up in MN produce and clothes were untaxed.
