    Depending on your state, you may be required to indicate that you purchased "online" and pay with your state income taxes.

    Palm is not collecting the sales tax.

    Tax was also collected on my purchases. There was no indication of taxes either until I saw the receipt.

    I believe it was mentioned in the terms you agree to when you first go into paid catalog. I know I read it somewhere because I was aware of this.

    Same argument about users penny pinching is valid.
    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    $0.06 does not break my bank, but my 8.25% sales tax on an App, just about does.

    Palm is collecting but not keeping the sales tax; it pays it to the taxing gov't, just as any online or offline retailer does. For Palm, tax collection is an extra cost (to build and operate the systems needed to do it), not a profit center. {Jonathan}
