Submission + - CompUSA charges tax on nontaxable CA e-waste fee

Erin Babnik writes: When ordering a display online from CompUSA, consumers in California are charged tax on the mandatory e-waste fee, a fee that is non-taxable. Since the state does not collect tax on this fee, CompUSA gets free money out of these online transactions (in addition to being able to keep three percent of the fee as a handling charge).

Here is the goverment page regarding the fee and its non-taxable status:
