    Apparently it started at the beginning of the month. Will it effect what and how much you buy online?

    Living in Utah, Musician's Friend charges me sales tax. That's one reason I buy elsewhere. :)

    What's sales tax?

    Oh ok I get it. Checked wikipedia :p Here we got a 26% flat sales tax :D
     
  6. That sucks.

    If they get away with it you know other states will follow. Especially broke states like the one I live it.
