    Yep - saw that.
  2. Re: Sales Tax on Smart Phones More Than Local Tax?

    Thanks.

    Ok, so I finally go a hold of the bill.

    The first problem I see, is the percentages are wrong.

    2.35% of $710 (I am pretty sure that shipping...

  4. Constitutional to Get Cited by a Civilian Who Has Been "Empowered" by the State?

    I don't know if "empowered" is the right word here, but it's all I could think of.

    I thought that only sworn law enforcement officers can stop a civilian, cite them for violating a statute, and...
  5. Re: Sales Tax on Smart Phones More Than Local Tax?

    Thanks for that.

    Read it and understand it, but it doesn't sit right with me. Called NYS dept of tax & finance, and was told there is no addtl tax on the sales of cell phones. Yes to plans, but...
  6. Re: Sales Tax on Smart Phones More Than Local Tax?

    Didn't think so.

    Just chatted w/the company. I was told there is an excise tax in NY on cellphone sales. The excise tax is an equipment tax that applies. The state of New York and New York City,...
  7. Re: Sales Tax on Smart Phones More Than Local Tax?

    Thanks.

    No service nor contract was purchased - only the phone itself.

    As for "free cell service" provided, no I really don't think so. It would have listed that on the bill, no?

  10. Re: the George Floyd Situation, Et Al. I Have an Idea on How to Help, but Have No I

    Umm, like, because I want to try and help? If you see a person who started the thread to feel good about themselves, you need to do some self re-evaluation, b/c you have no clue.

    IMO you are part...
  11. Re: the George Floyd Situation, Et Al. I Have an Idea on How to Help, but Have No I

    Yeah, that ain't helping.



    Who me? That's not why I started this thread.
  12. Re: the George Floyd Situation, Et Al. I Have an Idea on How to Help, but Have No I

    Thanks all for the responses.

    While this convo has (thankfully) remained relatively respectful and peaceful, I am still wondering about how to go about doing this. Any ideas on specific steps an...
  13. the George Floyd Situation, Et Al. I Have an Idea on How to Help, but Have No I

    -dea how to do it.

    Tried this elsewhere, but it didn't work. Please let's not talk politics and social/race issues here - this is a genuine attempt by me to try and help. Nothing more.

    First...
  14. Re: Item is Shipped W/O Insurance, and is Damaged During Shipping - Who's Responsible

    The liability would be on the company that provided the shipping (UPS, FEDEX, USPO) in accordance with the shipping agreement. Which may be zero.

    ???

    Unless the purchase terms state otherwise,...
  15. Item is Shipped W/O Insurance, and is Damaged During Shipping - Who's Responsible

    This hasn't happened; just curious for future reference.

    Let's say I buy something from someone in another state. Not through an online marketplace such as ebay, but let's say I find an item for...

    "uk ����" means "United Kingdom Great Britain". ie - England

    Well, ok then.

    Thanks guys!

  19. Find Company Shareholder Info for a Publicly Traded Company

    My question involves business law in the state of: USA

    Is there a resource to find out who a company's shareholders are? I'd rather not list the co. name, but the info I am getting is that they...
  20. State Taxes: Re: Sales Tax on an Item Purchsed from Reverb (Like Ebay)

    Yes, I have completed the transaction. Why would it make a diff? If I want the item, I cant wait to get this straightened out; that could take way to long. So, I made the purchase knowing that a) if...
  21. State Taxes: Re: Sales Tax on an Item Purchsed from Reverb (Like Ebay)

    Thanks.

    To be clear:

    1) I was not charged sales tax by the seller, but by Reverb

    2) If I had bought the item directly from the seller, who again is an individual, he would not collect sales...
  22. State Taxes: Re: Sales Tax on an Item Purchsed from Reverb (Like Ebay)

    Who or what is "CT DRS"?

    Connecticut State Department of Revenue Services

    What is your actual question?

    Whether or not I should be paying tax, due to the criteria I have previously laid out....
  23. State Taxes: Re: Sales Tax on an Item Purchsed from Reverb (Like Ebay)

    I saw those links before, thank you.

    Pretty vague, and does not address my issue - which is the same issue for many, I would assume. Problem is, most people take this stuff lying down. Oh well, I...
  24. State Taxes: Sales Tax on an Item Purchsed from Reverb (Like Ebay)

    I put "like ebay" in the title, as I am not sure who does/does not know what Reverb.com is. It is a marketplace similar to ebay, specifically for used musical instruments and gear.

    I just...
  25. Re: If Trump Directs Mcgahn to Fire Mueller, is That Really Obstruction

    Right. But what this comes down to, in my inexperienced mind anyway, is whether or not Trump telling Mcgahn to fire Mueller, and Mcgahn saying no, would constitute an act.

    Trump: Don, fire...
