20. But your paying it anyways.

The price of a taxed item goes up pretty much as much as the taxes do. They pass on the tax... they don't pay it. Only consumers pay taxes ultimately. Yes, you can avoid paying a sales tax by not purchasing the product, but it has no real bearing on the company's taxes. It may affect their profits, which is a different thing entirely, but not the percentage they pay - with your money that has flowed through them.

They don't have any taxes beyond taxes on their profits, and even the taxes from those are ultimately paid by you in the form of higher prices. It's a stealth tax on you, not them.
