I'm curious where the disconnect is, that STO still thinks it's ok to special tax Californians...

This may very well be the smoking gun, or at the very least a base to get this clarified.

Where does Cryptic stand legally in this?

Is it legal to charge extra (after the customer agrees to pay the original price) and call it 'tax', even though the STB claims otherwise?
