I started talking about this issue in my thread: No Dustbag?!? Since then LV graciously agreed to remedy the situation by sending me a box for my beautiful new Degrade Monogram Bandeau (the purple mirage one!). So no hard feelings there...still in LoVe with LV! BUT... LV taxed me on the fedex shipping charge when I purchased my bandeau via 866 (it shipped via Chicago's boutique). I asked about this tax and the SA researched it for a second and replied it was their policy to tax shipping. The issue is, can they do this when there is no actual tax imposed on them for shipping??? Fedex charges a flat $10 charge, so why the tax? I think it is because it is easier for them to tax it (they just put a $10 item charge on my receipt and it got taxed just like the bandeau). Now this tax only resulted in about an extra $1 charge, but based on that SA's "policy" response to my question, LV stands to make LOTS of money off us by doing this! Seems illegal, unfair, and just plain not nice! ush: I am in law school, and we are told that we might feel litigious during this stage in our lives...but correct me if I'm wrong, but this doesn't seem right at all!
