I was just thinking today, that it really sucks that I pay 8.5% tax on all my LV items. It's a pretty hefty amount IMO if you do the math. ush: I'm considering the Saleya and tax would be about $60. I could buy a lot with $60 (though not at LV). In the states, I cant think of anywhere else that has a higher tax rate, and almost all other states can buy from elux without paying tax which is a tremendous deal!! I wish I didn't have to pay tax either.
