I really hope Sony won't implement this in EU. Adding 21% of tax is a pretty huge price increase.

Um... they already did =D

Somehow that's a relief.

That was before new president... just wait.

 

State taxes are done by the state government, not the federal. Oregon doesn't charge a tax because people there pay an income tax every year.

it'll likely happen on the xbox one and the switch too

 

I'm not saying that just for the taxes.

There are a lot of things for which I want to leave PlayStation. But I'm stuck here for the moment.

Soon it will be everything!

Actually, Trump is proposing a large tax cut across the board to get the economy going. He isn't raising them at all. The last time we cut taxes in the US at a federal level was the 1980's.

Seems like someone doesn't get a joke.

 

As much as I'm not happy about this, I'm pretty sure this also happened on Xbox Live sometime last year so I'm not surprised. 

 

Right, because text is so rich in nuance.

Was going to happen sooner or later to certain states. Not surprised and honestly no one should be.

Got the email as well.  Just changed my address to Oregon.  So I should be good until Oregon starts charging tax.

I think you would have to change your ip address to actually get around it. 

 

Note that I do not condone tax evasion and this post is merely conjecture on the topic of how the Internet tax infrastructure may work. Any applications or methods to bypass any state tax used by those that have read this post, acted on their own. Dav9834 and psnprofiles are not liable for others actions :ninja:

Could you not use a fake address to avoid the taxes?

From what I've read on Reddit that's not necessary since your PSN account isn't tied to a specific IP.  You can be on your Vita traveling in Europe, but PSN isn't going to start charging you the EU prices as long as you're logged in with your American account.

Touche! 

This is a very good point!

The question then becomes how do they enforce this.

I got the email, but I just moved to Florida which is exempt.  I even updated my address a couple of days ago so was surprised to get the email.

Guess I'll just have to buy a WiiU and have fun with that instead.

I live in Missouri and didn't get that e-mail, so my guess is my state is unaffected. Either way, I buy more physical than digital, so I really don't care.

I'm pissed off to the core.

Maybe I'll switch to XBOX ONE sometime in the future.

xbox live games are taxed in my area.
