Default ebay question of item and tax

i bought a kustom monitor on ebay for $22, listed as KPC10M- upon looking at it the monitor plate says KSC10M- i havent received it yet, but dont think this is an issue for the price (just hope the speaker is ok) second thing its from ohio and i live in PA, ohio tax is 5.75% but he charged me $2.20, again, this seems double the tax rate if he can even charge it, i know this is penney money, but just kind or irks me with the model # and tax thing

You get charged the PA sales tax rate, not the OH rate.

True but it's still too high if charged 10%. https://www.salestaxinstitute.com/ju...n/pennsylvania

Ebay, not the seller should be collecting and paying the tax. Sounds like something is wrong here. I'd contact ebay and ask them what's up.

I think I would have asked about it before paying for the invoice, if it bothered me. Internet taxes are a fact.

the model listed is incorrect and the tax was overcharged, but as long as the speaker is full working (as stated) i wont have an issue with things, but just dont feel right about this purchase the way it unfolded

Or just read this: https://www.ebay.com/help/selling/fe...harges?id=4121

It looks like things changed in some areas as of Nov 1, 2019 so that could be why people are confused.
