It's even more fun in California which insists on charging sales tax on the original price, not the discounted price. When I buy something from Newegg or Staples with an instant rebate or coupon discount, I get charged tax on the pre-discounted price. If I buy a subsidized cell phone, I get charged tax on the full unsubsidized price.
There is no corresponding tax discount for the payback on the phone subsidy. The entirety of my cell phone bill gets taxed as a service. So I'm being double-taxed - I paid sales tax on the subsidized part of my phone's cost, and I'm also playing service taxes on it.
The same problem plagues sweepstakes. The bean counters at the company running the sweepstakes try to inflate the value of the prizes so they can have a bigger tax write-off. But the person who wins the prize ends up having to pay taxes on a "$2500 vacation package" when it might have only cost him $1000 to put the same vacation together with Orbitz.
