View Full Version : Layaway blues

07-16-2012, 6:51 AM
I chose the 'layaway' route from a local So Cal gun shop in Orange back in May and decided this July after more research that I wanted a different gun. The dealer told me that they had already paid the sales tax and that I would also be hit with a 'fee' for the time the gun was sitting in storage. Ok, I get the 'fee' for the time the gun was not on the shelf, the store is entitled to something there, but why did they pay a sales tax on a layaway item and is it legal for them to do that to me?

Wrong forum, try General Gun Discussions or Off Topic.

If you return an item, you also get hte sales tax refunded.

The store remits sales taxes that they collect on the NET sales, not on each individual sale.
