Case Name

Farneth v. Walmart Stores Inc.,
Case No. GD13-11472,
Court of Common Pleas in Allegheny County, Pennyslvania.

Case Summary

A class action lawsuit was brought on June 8, 2013, which alleged that Pennsylvania law requires retailers like Walmart to deduct the value of coupons used in a purchase before calculating the amount of sales tax owed on the purchase. The lawsuit also alleged that Walmart’s receipts were confusing regarding the sales tax that was collected, and that Walmart was able to deduct the value of the coupon before charging sales tax, but did not do so. Walmart denies that it did anything wrong, and contends that it received an opinion from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue that allowed Walmart to collect the tax.

    I have made purchases of various sorts and recall the coupon being deducted from the full price after taxes. One time I questioned the tax and said the state still gets theirs. I believe this is a bigger issue than just Walmart.
