Digital Goods are non-taxable in my state, but iTunes collected anyway.

what are taxable goods

Level 1 (0 points)

I just purchased non-free items in iTunes for the first time. I was very surprised to be charged 6% sales tax on my digital items.

Gee, thanks. Could you be less helpful?

We really need a non-helpful button here - I'd like to penalize people who only answer just to get a higher post count.

I didn't ask whether Apple's legal department was huge and infallible, I asked how to get my 6% non-sales tax back when the law as described by more than one tax authority site online currently claims it's not legal for Apple to take it for my State.

I'm assuming it was taken by mistake and am giving Apple the benefit of the doubt. Telling me that I'm wrong would've answered

the question, if you can back it up with a reference that proves that Digital Goods are, as of August 25th, 2010, currently taxable in Pennsylvania.

In fact, anything confirming or denying whether Digital Goods are taxable in Pennsylvania would be relevant to this question. Pointing out how large and smart their lawyers are, does nothing towards this confirmation. Ask yourself whether Microsoft's equally sizable and astute legal department ever did anything illegal, knowingly or unknowingly.

If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong, and I'll walk away having paid the 6% already. But if I'm right, I want to know how to get it back, and how to stop it from happening in the future. If you don't have anything relevant to say regarding the question asked, kindly go elsewhere. You're not needed here.
