Sales Tax Question
So, this is a new one to me if I've ever heard one from Verizon....I live in Mass, sales tax is 6 cents on the dollar...when I pre-ordered my phone online, I got the 32GB for $249 + the $30 upgrade fee - $100 loyalty discount, bringing my phone subtotal to $179.99. I then had a total of $9.37 in tax on the order bringing it to $186 and change, however, when Verizon charged my card, they charged it to the amount of $216. I called to figure out what happend and they are claiming that "sometimes they charge tax on the amount of the ACTUAL price of the phone", not the discount price which I paid. But my argument to them was why does my ORDER show something different...they are checking on it and are gonna call me back but I wanted to find out if anyone had info on this....are they trying to pull a fast one on me?
Thanks in advance for your help!
