I was shopping ebay today and was about to purchase something when I noticed the taxation since Democrats took office is off the charts on internet purchases.

Folks, these Robber Barrons are at war with you right NOW.
They are causing rampant inflation and at the same time, taxing your every move with crazy taxation and fees galore.

This is nothing short of a massive transfer of wealth from YOU to THEM.
It's also a way to help China since you'll see that most purchases direct from China are tax exempt or much less.
If the American people continue to look the other way, they are going to end up in very bad shape.
This is all out war against YOU and your way of life folks.

The tax on the item purchased here is 16% !!
I refuse to pay this kind of taxation. I didn't buy the item.

Who the hell gave these ruthless bureaucrats permission to force your wallets and purses wide open like this?

We CANNOT continue doing nothing. We will all be on welfare at the rate Democrats are currently bankrupting Americans.
PS..and there will be no welfare available.

Government debt $pending is the cause of inflation rates, & taxes of all kinds are hinged directly to inflation. Less g'ment = lower inflation & more g'ment = higher inflation. Just simple economics.

You are paying about 6.5%. Some states require that sales tax be collected on the shipping and handling (most do) as well.

Before jumping to BULLSHIT!!! you could have looked for the more obvious explaination. The poster is being taxed on the shipping and handling. Fortunately my state does not require that.

That is the STATES doing, not the Democrat's, as the OP claims! And if they are charging sales tax on shipping then the OP was paying only 8%, not 16%. In fact states were charging sales taxes on internet purchases during Tramp's failed one term, so the OP is still BULLSHIT.

The sales tax rate is around 6.5% as I stated. The shipping charges were more than the item purchased so it is not a matter of just dividing by 2.


0.46/7.04=X/100

The OP didn't say which Democrats and did not mention Trump. Maybe the democrats took over their state. IDK and IDC. I was just pointing out that most states tax the shipping and handling and sometimes they collect the local sales tax as well based on shipping addresses when those apply.

Fortunately the Old Dominion doesn't tax shipping and handling. We will soon be Blackface-Free. Y'all should move here.

Sorry kermit.
The tax increases and inflation I am referring to have gone into high gear since January 20th.

You can't deny like Lefties love to do. OWN IT.

Eat your own Bullshit.
Democrats are charging tax on SHIPPING. Republicans would NEVER do that.

And what's that you say? Prices at the supermarket are "lower than ever"?

BULLSHIT. Democrats are causing off the charts inflation with their irresponsible spending and policies.

I wish they would increase shipping tax to 100%, and then create a special 200% tax on internet sales.
That would be awesome.
We may actually see the return of small business retail.
I get very tired of needing something specific, and find the only way I can get it is on Amazon.

I see your point...but it misses mine.

Most lame stream Democrat sheeple have been fully fleeced into believing that only big government can responsibly and fairly decide who needs financial assets and who doesn't. Look around at all the ultra money hungry Democrats.

Taxation and inflation are their golden ticket to making you a servant and dependent as they get richer financially. (Morally they are bankrupt)

In the case you mentioned, they would never allow small business to flourish. Are you kidding me?
If small business began to do better they would start lumping fees and taxes on them to crush them.
wait.....or they might create a fake pandemic and force them all to close?

16% is excessive, unless it's Red Chinese or Mexican goods, then it should be 3,000%.

I'm paying around 8%-9% at the stores here in Texas, which seems to about the average on that list.

Agree with the Amazon part. I do zero buying on the innernetz, and get by just fine.

Well that is the thing, especially now after Covid. For many things you can only find it on Amazon.
Hate that.
I needed some chlorine disk for the hot tub... no one had any. Bought it from Amazon. I wanted a drop in roof patch, Lowes and Menards has seriously low inventory... bought it on Amazon.
Hate this.
