Hello, 
 
So I recently put in a step-up request for a 3080 ftw3, coming from the xc3. In my original request I had been quoted around $60, which was:
 
the price difference of the items + shipping + new taxes applying to the difference in the two items.
 
I had cancelled the request trying to step up to the recently announced hybrid 3080, but a customer service agent said they would not be available for step up. Cool.
Now I tried to restart the step-up for that ftw3, and it is now quoting $110, because I am being prompted to pay tax on the full price of the ftw3. I had seen confirmation in a couple other threads it should be the difference, but now another customer service agent is backing up the claim that it is the full tax on the new item. I was hoping someone could chime in on their experiences, or a mod could potentially help me out with this.
Thanks in advance!

    Hi grizzlexxx,
     
    That is correct, you would just pay taxes on the price difference.  Say the price was $100 difference, so you would pay taxes on $100 for the Step Up.

    Hi Peter N: Can you confirm that is indeed the case? In my step up cost breakdown page, it shows taxes for $53.66, which appears to be the tax on the full price of the 3080 FTW3, as opposed to the balance after deducting the value of the 2060 Super I'm trading in. If what you're saying is correct, is this cost breakdown preliminary and the final bill will be lower?

    Hey Jason54, I was in the same situation and I had received a ticket from a customer service rep. who had said that it will be fixed when you get to the payment phase.
     
     
    Customer Service Response:
    For context the original step-up amount I had was around $60 total (tax+ price difference+ shipping), and the new was around $110. I think the system is making some error, but nothing to worry about. Just file that step-up request in confidence! 
    ------------------Ticket Response--------------------
    Hi,

    I see here your original Step Up was cancelled, which showed the correct amount.  Now there is an incorrect amount showing for payment.  It will be adjusted once you get Step 4 to collect the payment.  The original Step Up price was correct.  If you have any questions, just let us know.


    Regards,
    EVGA (Peter)

    I have just spoken with our product manager, Jacob Freeman and was informed that the tax amount should be calculated based on the MSRP price of the new product. We are making sure this is properly reflected in the Step-Up information when it's being submitted. Anyone who wasn't charged the full tax amount would have been a mistake in the system. I do apologize for any confusion from prior contact.

    Hi Guys, for me it's hard to understand the calculated price for my example.
     
    I bought an RTX 3070 FTW3 Ultra for 739,00€ (19% taxes included) + 6,79€ for shipping. On the german EVGA Shop page the price for the RTX3080 FTW3 Ultra is 709€ (without taxes). How to calculate this example?
    I'm asking because i want to know exactly how much i need to pay before i break the seal on the box.
     
    Actually a RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra costs 980€ in Germany  If i can save money when i use the step up program for the RTX 3070 to RTX 3080 i will do that.
     
    Thank you!

    That is SOOO WRONG!
    Trade in value never get taxed (as is already taxed) like car for example.
    Step up = trade in, no brainer.
    Only price difference should be taxed.

    So you don't get credit for paying any of the tax on the original card?

    I'm also curious about why this is the case. Seems obvious on its face that only the price difference should be taxed.

    Probably because it is a new product. So you will be taxed on the full price of the card and not the difference.  When you are correct, you should only be taxed on the price difference.

    Actually, when you put it that way, it does make sense!

    Bummer, makes it less attractive to buy a 2080 Super then step-up to a 30 series card but I understand it.

    No other computer hardware manufacturer ---> has this type of Trade-Up program - for the first 90 days on new hardware
     
    You can use it as you wish, if you follow all the Rules
     
    Initially it was intended to help people feel more secure in making a purchase .. if new hardware that was "previously unknown to them" was suddenly released to the market - the purchaser would not have buyers remorse - but, would have a path to upgrade
     
    The fact that you can use the existing hardware - that you previously purchased - while waiting for your step-up notification is a real bonus
