Walmart Overcharging Customers with Coupons

November 19, 2018- Kohn, Swift & Graf is currently investigating Walmart for allegedly overcharging customers for sales tax when coupons are used.


It has been alleged that Walmart does not calculate the sales tax based on the total amount before the coupons are applied. Walmart customers claim that when they use a coupon, the company fails to calculate the sales tax based on the reduced sales total after a coupon is applied. Instead, Walmart charges sales tax based on the pre-coupon amount.

Retailers are supposed to calculate sales tax based on the “purchase price” after all discounts are applied, including coupons.
