With tax day quickly approaching, the last thing consumers need is to pay more taxes than they owe. Unfortunately, some companies have reportedly been charging an illegal sales tax for years. According to news sources in Connecticut, for example, Walmart might have been charging tax for gun safes even though gun safety equipment has been exempt from the state sales tax for the past fifteen years.
Connecticut’s Department of Revenue Services is currently investigating the issue. Our team are actively investigating a potential class action against Walmart and other stores that sell gun safety equipment. If you or someone you know purchased gun safety equipment and were charged a sales tax in Connecticut, or another state with a similar exemption, please contact us to discuss your legal rights.
