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.
