I want to use a mod(Cinematicmod 10), but it requires that I have HL 2 ep1+2 and I can afford it right now if tax isn't charged. So uhh does it? lol Also I dont know if it makes a difference, but I'm in NY.

Tax would be like... what... a few dollars on it? like barely anything... how can you not afford that if youre willing to pay for the game itself?

ohh ok.. you said you couldn't afford tax or something so thats why i was confused...

in that case just try buying it as you normally would and if it goes through then there you go. i dont think there's tax though ... i dont remember.

internet purchases do not exclude one from paying sales tax

Steam is tax-free outside the state of WA... ("Sales tax will be calculated during checkout for WA state residents")

I wasn't completely correct, then.. But iTunes charges tax.. That's the only one that comes to mind

Have fun with it. Don't just play the mod, either. You should really play HL2. Glad I could help.

Sales tax must be charged on sales over the internet if the company selling the product is located or has a distribution center located in the state of the customer.

You could have also gotten the Episode Pack off of Amazon for $9.99.

If you're in a state that charges taxes they do. Just like when you buy something on the internet they charge you tax if you live in a state with sales tax.
