>I am not being paid by Nikonians or anyone else; Neither am I (nor KEH)
>I don't have to post or help anyone. Nether do I, except that as I belong to Nikonians for a reason, which is to both learn and to share my knowledge.
>When I take that time to respond, I give people solid information as I know it, end of story. So do I, I don't make this stuff up to be a contrarian. I looked at my KEH invoices from this year - no sales tax. I went to their web site and placed an order up to the point of authorizing the payment - no sales tax. Perhaps it is some deal that the State of Georgia has with California. I don't doubt that you paid it, and I know that I didn't, so obviously it varies for some reason. People should check before finalizing the purchase. Same theory that they should read the product descriptions.
