C'mon! Show us where that is happening. As far as I know, the IRS doesn't consider cash rebates or credit card cash back money as taxable income. Please give us the factual information where this has changed.

Look up the whole issue with Connecticut. Newegg release their information to the IRS for taxable purchases. People started reporting rebates as 1099's

You need a SSN to report on a 1099. How many rebates are you sending in your SSN on?

Again link where people are forced by law to claim rebates and other rewards as taxable income.

http://www.moneybluebook.com/are-...le-income/

If people are claiming it as taxable income its their loss. All states ask if you bought something out of state, and did not pay tax, that you declare it so it can be taxed. This is always on the dollar amount that you purchased the item for.

I think people are confusing things like when h&r block gave 10% bonus cash on your refund if you put it into a gift card. That's not a earned reward or rebate by far, its a gift. That's why in that instance its taxable income but in no way is it a rebate or earned reward like a credit card.

One more time gift taxable. Earned reward for spending TAXED money, not income, not taxable.

The elephant in the room is the use tax. If people are only declaring rebates they are #1 taxing something they should not and #2 skipping required use tax (elephant).

This ultimately comes down to people who know nothing about taxes, following other slick dealers advice (buy from xyz for no tax) who do not warn of the consequences. Yes it is not economical to pay someone to go over all these purchases for possibly no profit after expenses, but here we are discussing it being done.


*edit* i feel compelled to leave this here after reading all the comments in linked threads (reddit) stating it's illegal to collect tax on a item purchased from a retailer with no physical presence in the state.

I would totally go for this if you are in need of a wireless adapter. If not but want as a 'backup' or just 'to have in case' I suggest looking up windows 10 and wireless issues. Several higher end wifi adapters and cards have become unusable with the latest windows 10 1709 with no fix in sight. It may come in a new windows feature update but it may also not. At the same token this adapter may work today but not on the next windows 10 latest feature update. I believe this is a contributing factor to older wireless ac devices dropping in price drastically (besides ax coming out). Some companies could be trying to dump their old stock to avoid not being able to sell the items if the next windows feature update breaks the functionality.
