So Amazon added CA sales tax (after I approved only the $79) to the Prime Membership fee. After inquiring with cust service I got a very general answer that 'Prime Membership is considered a taxable service in CA'. So I called the CA FTB and explained all the benefits of Prime and the tax specialist could NOT find it taxable (ref Regulation 1584. MEMBERSHIP FEES. Sec 6011.1, 6012, and 6012.1, Revenue and Taxation Code.) She said I would have to make a claim with Amazon. I see a class action lawsuit...do you?!?
UPDATE: Amazon's Tax Department is going to call me in 1 to 2 days...will let you know the result.
