How GetHuman3836963 fixed the problem
I spoke to an Ebay rep who revealed to me that as of July **** Federal Law requires a separate tax charge to go to certain states. VERMONT is one of those states. The seller will not see this charge. It will look like a named person from Ebay received the money. This particular transaction looked like it was made in WA whick is where the item was coming from. *LOOK CAREFULLY AT CHECKOUT to see how much is being added on. If your state is one of those states, expect your state % tax added to the balance. Again, the seller will not see this money. *So, to be clear, from now on as a Vermont resident, when I purchase anything from Ebay I should expect this separate *% state tax transaction.
