If a guy pays $100K for an item, then they show the buyer's premium but not the additional tax (if there is one), why wouldn't this be reflected in the final sale price? On a final sale of $100K, that's an additional $10,500 (if you're in Chicago).
Well, lots of other people don't have to pay that sales tax. The tax is personal to you. I would say it's not actually properly part of the final sale price. (If you live in Guam and it costs Heritage another $300 to ship a box to your hut above the water on stilts, should that be considered part of the sale price. Definitely not.)

I could see it going either way. The posted sale price I think is meant to reveal not only how much the winning bidder was willing to pay but also (more precisely and at least as importantly) how much the underbidder was willing to pay. The differential sales tax rates then complicate things enough that it's probably better for them not to include it unless/until the day when all bidders have the same required sales tax rate. Still, I can empathize with you as another of their buyers who's had to pay sales tax with them in recent years and has later wanted to sell some of the cards I bought from them.

I've spent a shit ton of money at Heritage in the last 2 years, and sent Lee what I thought was an extremely politely worded email pointing out difficulties I have putting yet more money in the coffers with my mobile devices and the response was. . . . . well, nothing. Crickets. Interesting customer relations approach.

Tracking number sent to me, finally. I guess between holidays and a huge auction, they were just slow and/were slammed.

I just got tracking too, but 12 days from the day I paid was way too long, holidays or not.

Won't be recommending them to anyone and am unlikely to give them anymore of my business.
