Hey All, I bought my bass over two years ago from Kai Arvi in Canada. Just yesterday I got a letter in the mail from the state of Maryland saying that I owe $650 in taxes on the bass. Has anyone else experienced this? I am making my living teaching and playing bass, so would there be an exemption because the bass is an essential tool for my career? If anyone could give me some advice I would really appreciate it. Don't really have $650 to shell out right now. adam.
