We’re writing in regards to your recent Nexus One purchase. There was an issue with the way the sales tax was applied to your order. When your order was placed, you paid taxes on the full retail price of the phone. However, you should have only been charged taxes on the sales price of the phone. We apologize for this issue and wanted to let you know that Google will issue a partial refund for the difference in the amount of taxes you were charged.

The refund will be issued to the debit/credit card used to complete the original purchase. To verify which card will receive the refund, please sign in to your Google Checkout account at https://checkout.google.com and click ‘View order’. The payment information for the order will be listed at the bottom of the order receipt.

If the debit/credit card used to complete your purchase has been closed, your card-issuing bank should forward these funds to your new account or mail a check to you for the amount of the refund.

If you have any questions about the refund, or if you need further assistance, please reply to this email and we’ll be happy to help.

Sincerely,

The Nexus One Team

Google Inc.

You've received this mandatory service announcement email to update you about important changes to your Nexus One order.

well i just calculated it

these are my numbers

8.875% = NYC Sales Tax
529.00 = RETAIL Price
-250.00 = Discount

8.875% of (529.00 - 250.00) = $24.76125

not much of a refund i guess but its good they are being honest...

Do you guys live in states with a sales tax?

I got mine forwarded to AUS via oregon, which i don't believe has sales tax. I did not pay any import tax, So i am assuming that at no point did i pay tax for the phone, would that be right? or do they put tax on at the time of purchase?

Got that email yesterday as well. I guess we were too excited to actually check the sales tax we paid?

I looked at the sales tax I paid through google checkout, and then cross referenced that through my bank account, and I paid the correct ammount. Hmmmmm, maybe a global refund of the 20+ dollars?

so, this doesn't apply to the people that bought it at full price or does it? i didn't get an email yet... :(

It wouldn't apply because you paid the correct sales tax. Google was taxing for the full price when people were buying at the subsidized price.

Hmm.. I wonder why I haven't received this email. I just checked my google checkout receipt and it looks like I paid full tax amount on subsidized price too lol. I wondered why tax was so much but I was too excited to think more of it haha.

They should refund me the price difference between the touchscreen they used and a legitimate touch screen.
