I recently bought an item from World Of Books, a UK outfit, I believe. The store reported back to me that the item was not in saleable condition and money was refunded - all but the sales tax. I queried them and was told eBay collected this themselves. okay....Why is bay doing this for an out of country store and the money collected just vanishes? Will need to call them (!!) to find out what the deal is. Anyone else had this issue?
