Read my post above yours.
Hotels? don't.....Advertised price + taxes and fees
Car sales? don't......agreed/advertised price + tax and licensing
Any store? doesn't ....... same thing. Add taxes at the checkout.
IMO, this is an attempt by the govt to hide their tax increases -- which the current Administration is planning to raise.
Another unnessary govt regulation.
I did read your posts. That will all change in the US. It is not like that in countries where the consumers are protected. The taxes are not hidden they are clearly outlined on the bill. You got it all backwards.
