Thank you, I know it wasn't a purposeful decision, this whole thing with Patreon collecting sales tax is relatively new, first starting in I believe 2020, and then expanding to more pledge types more recently.
Though if it had been an option way back in the beginning, it probably would have been correct since back then we were getting something in return (the monthly OCRecords freebie albums).
Thanks so much for being dlligent about this; I did see the email question but didn't have the time/focus to follow up, I'm sorry about that. When we launched the Patreon, that definitely had not been an option, so it certainly wasn't leaving something unchecked on purpose. We'll look into this very soon!
When Patreon charged sales tax for my OCRemix pledge at the beginning of November, I was confused why a donation to a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization in which I receive nothing in return would be taxable. I first tried reaching out to them about it, but they said that if it's not taxable y'all would need to adjust your tax settings on Pateron. So I used the "about -> Contact Us" form here to ask about it, but never heard anything back. Since my next Patreon bill has now come in, also with sales tax charged, guess I'll try asking about it here now.
If it's correct that sales tax should be charged, then that's fine. If it's incorrect, I'd appreciate it if y'all could update your Patreon tax settings for bills going forward. I don't care about trying to fix what's already been charged.
I got bored sitting around waiting for a sequel to Mankind Divided, so I put together a little trailer/intro bit of music for a speculative sequel.
You’ll hear in it the Icarus and Home themes from Deus Ex Human Revolution.
