Why is the projected sales tax so high on this internet purchase?
I have been contemplating buying two new iPhones for myself and my wife. Just surfed over to the ATT website and plugged it into their calculator. The two 32G phones would be $600. It estimates the sales tax for my zip code at $132! That’s 22%! Is that possible? Am I missing something? Note, I live in California. I know the taxes here are high (sales tax included), but 22%?
