Well it is alot, when you were only planning on spending less than 200 bucks on an lcd lol

And Actually, I do believe its neweggs fault. How much work could it cost them to have a little logo that says separate fees may apply according to your state.

How would you feel if someone knocks on your door and tells you "GIVE ME 8 DOLLA! ME SAVE THE ENVIROMENT! LOLLLOLOLO , ME JUST WANT CASH!"
I bet you would not give him anything. This is my point of view, and I just not think they should hide that kind of stuff.

It's a tax. In the US, at least, taxes aren't generally calculated until checkout. Write your government representative demanding a law requiring that the after-tax price be displayed before checkout if you really care that much.

They do mention taxes on the website, by the way: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

with 8 dollars you can buy great stuff like thermal paste....

I did not find the newegg link where they said the would charge me those 8 dollars.

dude get over it. It's not New Egg's fault. And you should have already known about it. If you don't like to spend $8 extra on a monitor then I suggest you move away from California.

these are all governmental issues...so no fault of any vendor...blame it on the states

Fear the day if they are successful in taxing internet usage...our emails would be like postage...however, I would assume if that does happen...spam would be much much less

I doubt that will happen. And its unenforceable. The internet cannot be policed, China has shown us that much.
