On 7/16/15 I made a purchase at the Sears Outlet Store on Hall Rd. I noticed that the tax rate is incorrect on the receipt. Michigan's tax rate is 6%. The tax rate listed and added to my bill was 6.950%. .950% higher than the state rate. When I questioned the error the sales clerk knew nothing about it. The store managers response was "Call corporate office, I have nothing to do with that". I feel the store manager should have said he would look into the error and have it corrected. No refund was offered. It is illegal to charge the incorrect state tax.rate.

    Most cities have a tax too. There could also have been an increase in the state sales tax that you missed hearing about and that had just went into effect. Being you are upset about it contact your State Department of Revenue or whatever it is called there.
