I do have concerns on how to apply sales tax to the sales.

I do have concerns on how to apply sales tax to the sales.State is SC, sales tax rate is 8.0% and here is an example... I buy a cell phone from the vendor at $100. List price is $150 but the carrier its running promotions if a customer signs up today they only pay $50 which is a saving of $100. I will get reimbursed $80 in a rebate from the carrier so it would translate in $20 in profit. However, the state is telling me I have to tax the customer at the full retail price which is $150 even tho the customer paid only $50 because it was on sale. I think I should have the customer pay sales tax on $50. What is your thought?

ABC Company “the Company” is a California corporation that performs background checks on a national and international basis in connection with business transactions, client acceptance and employment.The Company just hired a sales rep that is a resident of Connecticut and will be working from home. All research for these background checks is performed from the Company's offices in California or Ohio. There is no surveillance or similar activity involved, although the Company does have a PI license in both CA and OH. The services involve searches of databases and physical searches of court records, and preparing a report of the information found.In the sales and use tax doc dated December 15, 2015 published by the Office of Legislative Research, it is noted that “private investigation, protection, patrol work, watchman and armored car services (CGS Sec. 12-407(a)(37)(D) are taxable services; however, the statutorily exempt section provides that “private investigation, protection, patrol work, watchman, and armored car services performed by off-duty police officers and firefighters are excluded.” (CGS Sec. 12-407(a)(37)(D)(i).Are the background checks as described above subject to sales and use tax in Connecticut?
