Ebay purchases

Post by lured_in_again » Thu Oct 28, 2021 8:32 pm

Figure a few people on this site make occasional purchases through Ebay. Noticed a couple months back that they were applying sales tax to accounts without a prior sales tax exemption on their account. It has taken some phone time and a lot of messaging to them, but I was able to convince them to refund sales tax from silver and gold purchases on my account as my state no longer taxes those items. (googled and found it is that way in 38 states) So, just offering a heads up to anyone that may not have noticed that this had begun @ Ebay......

I used this link and eventually was put in touch with their "tax exemption team" through a phone call or two and their Ebay messaging system. https://www.ebay.com/help/buying/paying ... es?id=4771

Thanks for the info. I was able to chat with a ebay person and she was a big help.
