Stupid Law in Massachusetts!

TAXACHUSETTS IMAGEI don't know if you have this law in your state, but here in Massachusetts,
we do....and it sucks!!

Here is my story.....

I got an appliance for Christmas, and it didn't work properly, so I took it back to WalMart to exchange it for another one, and because I and the gifter did not have the sales receipt, I was told that I would have to re-pay the taxes!!!

What???? WHY??? When I am doing an even exchange??

The stupid answer that I got was that in the state of Massachusetts, if you don't have your receipt, even if you are doing an even exchange, you have to pay the taxes again??? WTF??

I tried to explain that their item was defective and that I only wanted another one, and it didn't matter....so I asked to speak to a manager, who said the same thing.... it is a state law, and it is not only Walmart that has to uphold this, it is every other store too.

Now, I don't know about you, but I have never heard of something so preposterous in my life!!! That leaves the consumer paying taxes again on a defective item, just because I didn't have a receipt?? Still doesn't make sense to me??

So I had to repay the taxes, and the next day, I asked the girls at work if they had heard of this, and a few of them had, and had to pay the taxes again too! The others were lucky and hadn't had to return anything!

Now, my question is this.....why do I not have to pay the taxes again "if" I have a receipt?? But I do have to pay them again if I don't?????? What does not having a receipt have to do with a defective item, and an even exchange???

Any ideas???
I'm dying to hear them!!

Till Next Time,

It's just one more way to generate money to run the state. There are many and you just met one. Sorry about that.

Have a terrific day. :)

That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Hard to believe that some bonehead gets paid to sit around and make up laws like that one. Luckily in Pa we don't have that law.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

The only explanation I can give you is that MA wants proof you paid the tax & that would be on the receipt. For all they know, it was purchased online or from another state that doesn't have the taxes and they want their cut of the pie.

I california if you dont want to be carjacked you can carry a locked unloaded gun,with bullets locked in seperate container and if you are caught with a legaly purchased gun loaded outside your home the gun will be taken and you.go to jail,if you.can unlock both boxes and load gun while being robbed you will be one fast dude,so just put the pedal down and hope for no speeding ticket.
