Sales tax over charged... How about you?

Recently I bought an item from Buy Direct at Freescale web site.

I noticed that they included shipping cost in CA sales tax calculation.

According to this (, shipping cost should not be included in sales tax calculation.

I believe most of states have similar rules.


I contacted Freescale support but surprisingly they ask me to contact their ecommerce partner to resolve it myself and closed the case.

Couldn't believe this is Freescale's response... Thought over charging their customers is a big problem.

Especially this could have impact on quite huge number of orders in the past and future.


Is there anyone also bought something through Buy Direct?

Could you check if your sales tax was correctly charged, and share it with us?


Thank you!
