WTH! :evil: that's just dirty. it's bad enough that we're getting raped on gas prices, high insurance rates, dirty politicians... and now this? man.. what are they going to think of next??

but then again.. if a person is buying all these gear in hopes to build a business in the future, then you should be able to claim it back by claiming
sole proprietorship right? or something along that line?

Yeah, but you have to be incorporated to do that...otherwise, you buy everything as an individual. Once incorporated, you can declare a business expense...but, remember, corporate taxes are a PITA! And, you cannot show a loss in the company, for 2 out of 5 years...otherwise, pay the price.

Either way, just declare it...it's easier, and less headache if/when you get audited. Or, don't order online, buy local, and live happy.

grr.. then it really defeats the purpose of buying online at a lower price. expect perhaps getting taxed at a cheaper price when you do declared.

now i'm bummbed...

All that buying online does is save you a little bit of time, before you have to pay the taxes...at least in NY & Cali. Basically, depending on when you buy something, the up front savings of tax can be a bonus. Other times, not. There's no 'cheaper' about it. If you go to BB and pay 7.75% on a DVD, then that's the rate that you will have to pay, for a camera/lens/etc. bought online, when it's time to file.

Of course, there are those that don't file/declare their items. Nothing wrong with that...I suppose...till uncle sam catches on, and finds you. Your IP Address/Contact Info. is on the website where you purchased from. Those vendors still have to claim their 'sales' so, you are part of their invoices. Simple.

Oh well, the double rebates are still worth it, in my opinion, as they basically save you tax + some money, in the long run. Better than having to pay full price.

Well, sucks, doesn't it? However, as ciitizens of this fine country, where things are so cheap, costs money. Whether it be price, tax, or time...

I wonder if this applies to items you buy used...as the tax has already been paid on them? There's a loophole for ya...and could get you out of some trouble, were it to arise.

Canon Double rebates begin 10-15-06

Buy any qualifying Canon product, get a rebate..buy any two different, get double rebates.
A 5D rebate is $300. Buy a qualifying lens or flash unit, the rebate on the 5D is $600. Buy a 30D and another item, get a $200 rebate.
I believe you also retain the rebates on the other items. Looks like they are smaller this time around, until they are doubled. These look like pretty good rebates on the 5D and 30D.

And no, the 300 f/2.8 does not qualify for a rebate.:(

vmad FLAME-ON…
The Canon rebate program is my biggest disappointment with Canon as a company and if anyone from Canon is reading this, FIX THE F***ING thing. In June, I bought three items from the rebate list a XT rebate $100, Speed light rebate $15, and a lens with a $10 rebate. Finally after 3 frustrating attempts, I finally got the $15 and $10 rebates but the $100 rebate is still in limbo with Canon’s claim being that I never bought a XT and I am about to put together the package a fourth time. Luckily, I took the advice of many posters here and documented EVERY FREAKING THING down to the dates I sent things, the people I talk to because it will take multiple phone calls and no one seems to know anyone else and everyone is oh so sorry but cant seem to get anything done.
Bottom line, if you are purchasing the equipment and need the cash back, don’t count on it. Document everything and keep it all until the check clears. Expect to make several phone calls to follow up and keep thing moving forward. Even if all goes well, it will take a long time to get anything back.
FLAME-OFF

Yeah, thats too bad. I was hoping for this lens to be on there, but noooooo! I went ahead and ordered it last night anyway.


Couple of DSLRs, number of lenses and other stuff... plenty short on talent.

I had no problems with the cashback offer here in the UK on the 5D - sent the stuff off to Ireland, got a cheque back in a week and a bit.
