    Why Microsoft charge the same price as what buying as taxes

    Hi Sultan,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. In the United states, all items are taxed except food. So when you see the $9.99 it comes out to around 10.30-10.60 depending on your local tax rate. This is managed by the Federal government and your local and state governments.
    Microsoft needs to comply with these laws.

    Hope this helps.

    EA wont take my payment , tax on digital and were are they games

    First Microsoft is not charging you, Electronic Arts is. They can choose what forms of payments to accept. Same reason why Netflix doesnt take your Microsoft Account money. Secondly I havent looked at the ToU for EA Access but not all services allow you
    to use prepaid cards for services. Again Netflix is a prime example. Third tax is handled differently from state to state, company to company. I dont get charged tax on digital games from MS yet I get charged tax when buying games from Wal Mart. You need to
    check what your states laws are.

    Microsoft points change

    I don't think you understood what the ms points was

    When you buy ms points the price of the points included the tax

    With currency you aren't charged any different

    It is actually the same season passes are 49.99 but as required by your local government you are taxed on it

    Just as you are taxed on ms points purchases

    You just didn't see it

    Hence why the demonization were always had a different t requirement like 4000 ms points which was like 5 bucks

    Etc

    Over-priced games! DISGRACE!

    Unfortunately xbox will have to adhere to the regions policies on taxes, prices etc.

    That's why prices vary from country to country. In the uk we often pay about the same in £ to the us in $ so effectively we are charged more on face value.

    How To Save Money On Xbox One Games At Launch

    Icestorm III - Not sure why you have been paying taxes on digital purchases, since I never have. When I buy points card at retail or points codes, I have never been charged tax. A 1600 point card costs be exactly $20. And then, when I buy a game online
    for, say 800 points, I pay 800 points, not 800 plus tax. Tax is being collected, no doubt, but it is incorporated into the price. This is in contrast to buying a game at retail, where in the United States, tax is added on top of the price (I realize in Europe
    this is different). So in my county of the US, for instance, I am saving 8% right there.
