Excellent question. No. You would not pay the full retail price on that tv because its an actual sale price. You follow? Where as on the phone its not always a sale price because you have the 500$ phone but you pay 100$ with a 2 year contract. So in a sense they are giving you a "deal". Its not a sale price. So they are basically take money off the retail price instead of changing the price for the day. That's why we have to pay so much taxes for our phones. I'm in LA county where I live and its 9.75% sale tax. So 10% really. But I live in long beach so I can drive to orange county where the tax is 7.25%. Worth it for a 5 min longer drive. Hope this makes sense.

Do I complain about the taxes? Yes. Would I move from here? Naaaaawwwww. I live 7 miles from the ocean and the weather, well when it gets cold I have to wear an extra tank top to work and my winter flip-flops :}
