When I ordered our Nexus Ones I commented out loud (in a coffee shop) about how much tax there was on it. $26.45! I was glad shipping was free, but man that’s a lot of tax!
Yesterday Google notified me that I was overcharged, and would be receiving a partial refund:
We’re writing in regards to your recent Nexus One purchase. There was an issue with the way the sales tax was applied to your order. When your order was placed, you paid taxes on the full retail price of the phone. However, you should have only been charged taxes on the sales price of the phone. We apologize for this issue and wanted to let you know that Google will issue a partial refund for the difference in the amount of taxes you were charged.
Today they made good on it with a $17.50 refund.
More Android Awesome.
