Fleabay is doing this. When I noticed it I I checked the Fleabay site and NYS taxation and finance. I can't find anywhere that says it is OK to tax shipping charges. What gives? Just yesterday I won an auction and the seller offered a slower, lower shipping price if you asked for it. I did and she submitted an invoice with the lower shipping price. Fleabay would not let her do that! They kept the higher price in the invoice. So she submitted a discount for me to offset the higher price. Fleabay showed her the lower invoice but still kept the higher price in my invoice. And they charged tax on that. Even though I was not paying that shipping price. WTF!!??!! Are they that cheap-azz? They have to weasel a few bucks from every buyer on shipping? Worse, the seller told me Paypal (owned by Fleabay) charges tax on shipping at the seller end. Really? So they are collecting tax on shipping twice? I am going to call my State Attorney General about this so stay tuned.
