I contacted a local FFL to handle the transfer of a pistol I purchased online. This is how the conversation went. Me: Hi, I will be purchasing a handgun on the internet. Would you be able to do the transfer for me? And what would the fees be? FFL: Shur, The transfer fee is $30. Me: OK, great. So $30 out the door? FFL: yes Me: Are there any additional fees? FFL: There is no tax because it's considered a service. The gun came in today. So, I head over there to do the paper work. Every thing's going good. I like my new gun, the FFL is easy going and knowledgeable. I'm felling really good about the transaction and the FFL. I pay him the $30. He takes a long pause, and proceeds to tell me I have to pay sales tax on the gun.:huh: We engage in a polite debate. AT which point he informs me all FFL's are required to collect sales tax on transfers. The main reason I went with this guy is because he was not charging me tax. So now he's got my gun, my money and is charging me the tax he said did not apply. He seems like a good guy. So I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. And chalk this up to miss communication. What do you guy's think?
