    I can understand state sales tax, which is usually 6 or 7%. But 20%??? That seems crazy? I've never paid twenty percent tax on anything in USA.
    Anyone know what gives?

    I'm not following here - I've never seen tax on apps. Can you clarify what you're seeing? Is this on people purchasing your app or your purchases of other apps?

    On the googleplay store, I'm about to purchase a $6.99 app but at purchase, the total is $8.39. That's a twenty percent tax. I know that google is now collecting sales tax in most of the fifty states (not all)...but sales tax in my state is only 7 percent. I know that there is 20% VAT tax in EU, but I have never paid twenty percent tax for anything in the USA. There's no explanation of the tax other than "sales tax"

    I don't get any tax on apps either. I will attach a screenshot in a few moments.
