Gay Digital Tax on Buying BP?

Er, so I came back to the game after awhile, and decided to shell out cash for Episode 3.

While paying, I noticed… 5% tax for British Columbia.

It’s not much, but why on earth is this?

– Canada has no taxes on digital items.

– The whole microtransaction thing is based upon the idea of donation, which by definition is not taxed.

– Your Buy BP page even says that our purchase is a donation.

I mean, it’s true that you could argue that we are purchasing the service of maintaining this game from CZ rather than buying digital items and therefore Canadians need to be charged GST, but why oh why choose to give our money to the government =/

to sign up for world of warcraft tournament realms, blizzard charged like fifteen dollars or something but because of this law in quebec that required all pay-to-enter contests to give the province 5% of the prize, they made it so that canadian residents could write an essay as their entrance fee lol

Sure must suck now that you’ve been raped for that additional 75 cents. Gonna have to tighten your belt, take the bus to work, skip some meals, maybe just start beating your clothes on the wall since laundry soap is so expensive. I feel for you, man, I really do.

Yeah, QC has an annoying law regarding contests and prize draws, but still not for digital items.

Regardless of Bacchus’ math fail on 9.99 * 0.05, I’m just wondering why CZ has gone for the route of charge unnecessary GST to Canadians, then pay unncessary taxes to the Cdn government.

I’m just going to change my paypal location to Botswana.

If you’re purchasing Episode 3 I’ll bet you bought 2, as well.

I didn’t pay sales tax when I purchased Ep2, or I would have posted about it.

It’s either something new, or I used one of my american accounts before =/

Shouldn’t it be HST from BC? That means 12%. We haven’t have the GST since July.

Ya I mean really, **** the government right? Everything they do is so unnecessary and I will be damned if they manage to wrench a gumballs worth of change away from me. Money is the devil anyway and I think everything should be free and why can’t we all just live in like a commune or something you know man? Like sharing and just everyone getting what they need. I foresee no possible problems with this state of society.

You did log in to your account… right? Either that or you’re in a different BC than I am, posting through an alternate reality wormhole.

My income tax was 34% last year, and I don’t even make that much right now. Add that to 12% sales tax.. If you actually had a job that paid more than McD’s does, you’d probably notice what’s going on where you’re paying taxes too.

I’m still curious why CZ is paying tax on non-taxable items.

So the reason taxes are evil and you don’t want to pay them is because you bumume I have a minimum wage job? I see.

I live in the U.S. I don’t consider myself “American” as I’m not from here originally, but I’m in favor of taxes if not what the money is used for. I don’t even know many people here that are outright upset about the presence of taxes. Dunno where you got your stereotype from, but it’s clearly inaccurate.
