That being said there should be NO commission charges on the tax as that's not part of the sale itself. That's just "extra" money that is required to be sent to the State. ALL of it so yes, that part was clearly a ripoff.

I also agree with ToneGopher's post here (#12) in that if they won't fix this for you then you need to report them. Eithger way I'd post a review somewhere to warn others of this practice and the fact that they didn't notify you of the sale for months(?!).
