[UPDATE] Addition of Sales Tax When Purchasing NX
Note: No sales tax will be collected before Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at 12:00 AM PDT (3:00 AM EDT / 9:00 AM CEST / 5:00 PM AEST).
They have taxed me befor those dates...my new monitor x.x i was lucky they dropped the price because....the tax jacked it up again.
We'll start to see everything that we buy online get taxed, from computer, consoles, mobile. gachas, DLCs, brand new, play store, maybe even your orders on Amazon or wherever.
I don't think the issue is that there's a sales tax. Rather, before, governments could not collect sales tax from a company/vendor who made a sale/transaction outside the state they were located in. After the Supreme Court ruling on South Dakota v Wayfair in 2018, it granted states the right to collect sales tax on all transactions.
The normal complaint on taxes is not that taxpayers are unwilling to pay taxes, but after they pay these taxes, they don't see this money being invested back into them.
This right here.
Anyone blaming Nexon for following the law is laughable.
LOL 'financially irresponsible'
guess people who make less $ can't buy NX anymore
The more taxes we ignore and let them slide by, the more we'll get taxed in the future
Well, yeah, people who make less money really shouldn't be using it on things that aren't necessities. That goes for most things and not just NX. You should only ever be buying these things when you have your needs covered.
Of course, people can completely ignore that and spend money on NX anyway. But it would be financially irresponsible.
I too am pretty surprised that online games have avoided taxes for so long. Maybe all the hype and talk about loot boxes drew the attention of law makers to the industry lol I also wouldn't doubt that the taxation of online merchandise is probably a bipartisan issue. It both favors states rights and taxation of "luxury" products. Also you'll find that both R and D states are mixed on their individual state laws regarding taxation of virtual content.
Make VIP updated, and stop with the dumb cash grab attempt by abandoning old features like the pon shop, beauty coupons? Really? what about our pons?
Id stop much sooner because the moment beauty coupons exist, I know even more things will start to become bull.
But what can I say? No one seem to listen to reason no more, go on...buy more NX with Tax for those who were not effected by it for a time. I was trying to save your wallets falling prey to RNG rates below 1%. No one loves rates below 1%...
For example in Virginia, services are not taxed but sales of some digital goods are.
For example if I buy a game off Steam that's taxed but paying for a Monthly subscription on something like Netflix or Xbox One Service are not taxed, nor are gift cards taxed.
Taxing a Karma Koin card that was used to pay for a SERVICE could very well be illegal under Virginia Tax code and what is Nexon's VAs tax # anyways?
The previously mentioned Court Case is license by the Supreme Court for tax embezzlement because companies could collect tax but never remit it to the thousands of tax zones in the US and no one would ever know.
Thing is, NX counts as a virtual good for all intents and purposes. It might not have a use other than for buying in the games' cash shops, however they are selling a virtual good rather than a service, and as such fall under no restriction regarding this.
Virginia Taxation Law Gov Page
B. The tax levied under this chapter shall be collectible from all persons that are marketplace facilitators that have sufficient contact with Virginia to require registration under subsection C.
C. A marketplace facilitator shall be deemed to have sufficient activity within the Commonwealth to require registration under § 58.1-613 if it meets at least one requirement in each of subdivisions 1, 2, and 3:
1c. Providing a virtual currency that purchasers are allowed or required to use to purchase products from the marketplace seller;
H. When a marketplace seller that is not otherwise required to register for the collection of the tax under any of the provisions contained in subdivisions C 1 through 9 of § 58.1-612 makes both direct sales and sales on a marketplace facilitator's marketplace, only the marketplace seller's direct sales shall be considered in determining whether the marketplace seller is required to register for the collection of the tax under subdivision C 10 or 11 of § 58.1-612.
Then there's also this line here:
I. No class action shall be brought against a marketplace facilitator in any court of the Commonwealth on behalf of customers arising from or in any way related to an overpayment of sales and use tax collected on sales facilitated by the marketplace facilitator, regardless of whether such claim is characterized as a tax refund claim. Nothing in this subsection shall affect a customer's right to seek a refund on an individual basis.
So this means that if you're in VA, you can technically ask Nexon for a legal refund if your child is addicted to loot boxes, or something of that nature. Oh, and the virtual market of NX is taxed. Hooray...
The fact that «definitions» are (surreptitiously) being changed over the generations to the point where present-day society seems to believe that Right means Left, Up means Down, Black is White, War is Peace, Ignorance is Strength, Freedom is Slavery, etc., is something that I absolutely cannot just ignore without needing to counter-act at least some of that self-destruction with corrections.
Lawful does not mean Legal and Legal does not mean Lawful (but nearly all of the population since at least a few generations back have lacked the knowledge to know much about etymology and why many words that are regarded as synonyms are not actual synonyms). Tax only applies to so-called Debtors under Contract. Why in the world would you contract with «Taxing» entities ? Why not Rescind/Cancel the Signature/Contract or at least convert the «Status» of the Entity/Agency/Corporation to one that is Exempt From Levy and thus not liable to pay/collect Tax ? Actually, that would probably be too much detail to go over, for only one post, anyway.
Etymology : I suspect that most of you reading this probably know next-to-nothing about that extremely deceptive «language» known as Legalese. Essentially, what you see/hear may sound like English, look like English, but, in fact, happens to be a completely foreign language that is not English (not the type that you are familiar with speaking in so-called common-parlance). Legalese also has its own «Rules of Grammar» which CHANGE THE MEANINGS OF WORDS, depending on its grammatical-construct, even to the point of certain key-words/phrases being «case-sensitive» (like many of your on-line passwords).
ALL of the world's so-called «court-systems» are under an «international franchise» which is why the «court-proceedings» are more-or-less essentially the same world-wide (essentially like a one-world government/religion). All of the world's corporate-government contracts fall under the (unconstitutional) UNIDROIT system. Notice how the lines of «code» are «Copy-Righted» as are ALL «Statutes» of every so-called «State/Province»/etc. More on this another day (possibly).
The fact that all «Statutes» are «CopyRighted» demonstrates an example of evidence which shows that all so-called States/Provinces/Governments are actually corporations as the «UNITED STATES» is also defined in Title 28 U.S. Code § 3002(15)(A)
If I were Directing any Company/Corporation, with the knowledge that I have about Legalese and the «Contractual Nature» of «Tax» obligations to corporate-government «taxing» entities/agencies, not to mention the fact of my awareness of the «Karmic» consequences of funding what I regard as «extortionists (or extortionist corporate-government agencies/entities who are engaged in Daily Acts of Treason)» who do not have my Company's/Corporation's best interests in mind, I would probably take measures to re-negotiate a contract for the business to be or become or return to being Exempt From Levy (Tax-Exempt). Their corporate-government «Constitutions» are supposed to secure such a Protected Right for the Free Exercise of Conscience. Unfortunately, few people, even whole entire «Legal-Departments» of today's Organisations, are aware that those so-called «Government-Forms» can be «modified» to add/include relevant/pertinent information as a Contract in order to secure proper business-status (with actual Supreme-Court Rulings that can be cited on or appended to the page/forms to back up such Right-to-Contract).
IF they are in need of $$$ from my company/business/corporation, they can ASK for $$$, and IF it is being used for a benign activity that benefits the community/society, then I would have no objections with my company/business/corporation funding any kind of «welfare» service/projects directly, whether it be to assist the local-hospitals with life-saving medical-supplies (but not psychotropic-drugs), repairing damage to the roads (which they really should already be doing with the fuel-excise tax that they get from people filling up their gas-tanks anyway as it is already FAR-more-than-enough to more-than-cover road-maintenance anyway), helping to provide Internet-access to the local-schools, etc.
«Government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed» -The very first line of just about every so-called Constitution of every so-called State/Province/Government in/of the entire World... (which are all also apparently Copy-Righted... when it comes to the «Corporate» versions, anyway, not to be confused with the «Organic» versions of those so-called Constitutions)
«A treaty is in its nature a contract between two nations, not a legislative act. It does not generally effect, of itself, the object to be accomplished, especially so far as its operation is infra-territorial; but is carried into execution by the sovereign power of the respective parties to the instrument.»
Foster v. Neilson, 27 U.S. 253, 314 (1829)
Elaboration according to https://www.haguelawblog.com/2018/09/treaty-just-contract-awfully-powerful-one/ ...
A treaty in its nature is… not a legislative act. But by virtue of the Supremacy Clause, it takes on the authority of a legislative act because it is ratified with the consent of the legislature (or at least half of it) and becomes supreme law.** It thus overrides any lower authority in conflict with it.
Obviously, the best example in my world: the Hague Service Convention, which technically forces U.S. rules to give way to foreign law.
You read that correctly. Foreign law overrides U.S. law.
Oh and i see you are still here Crims
