    Default Rock Island Auction realized price - word of caution

    I recently purchased a K98k from the regional auction for a hammer price of 1600.00.
    By the time the final bill arrived it was over 2100.00.

    So here's what you get:

    1. Hammer Price
    2. Buyers premium
    3. Shipping
    4. Insurance
    5. State sales tax

    The last one is the big surprise as its the first time I was hit with this.

    I would hate to be the guy that buys a 20,000.00 sniper because when the smoke clears
    you are looking well over 25,000.00

    Not all states have a sales tax but I know Texas and Ohio do.

    Wow that sucks to hear Bruce this kind of reminds of a carbine I bought from an auction house down south. I paid like $450 for the carbine but after all the fees, taxes, shipping, and transfer cost it was almost like $675 when I finally got it.

    Unless there is something at auctions like this that you have to own for you collection go for it but keep all those fees and extra costs in mind.

    I think it is up to 31 states that jumped on the online sales tax. eBay hits a lot of people with it too. Most auctions if you phone bid it is cheapest and using proxibid or another third party site is the most expensive.

    Looking quickly it maybe up to 41 that collect remote online sales tax.

    There are only 5 states that collect no online sales tax.

    2018 SCOTUS decision in SD v Wayfair opened the door for the sales tax collection.

    It’s up to 34 States and it truly does make it tough when there’s going to be, in my case, 8.7% State Sales Tax added time the final sum.

    I'm in PA Bruce and it's been on for about a year or even a bit more. Most gun sites like Apex, Numrich, whatever they automatically add it on when you go to checkout. Ehay too. It's the new reality unfortunately.

    That's it. That opened the flood gates.
