I did some reading a few weeks ago about the tax rate eBay collects. From what I read, they collect an average rate per state and not a rate based on a zip code. My zip code should only be charged state and county tax which is 6.33% and not a city tax. eBay charges me close to 10% which is ridiculous. It makes me wonder if they are actually paying the premium on the correct tax rate to the state or pocketing the difference like on office space.
