Default Port of Tampa

Just a heads up,don't know if subject has any prior posts.
Did you know that if you purchase anything before reaching the 12 mile limt you are charged a sales tax for the Tampa Port Auth.
It's shown as TPA tax. Purchased a bottle of wine at first sitting and noticed it. It was also on purchase of a bucket of beer just after boarding. Next thing maybe all the ports of call may want part of the nickel dime pie.

It's the same, no matter which port you leave from. You will get charges whatever the local tax is until you reach that 12 mile point.
