[CNN MONEY] Get ready to pay sales tax on Amazon  

post #1 of 322
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Attention Amazon shoppers: Be prepared to pay more when you purchase goods, depending on where you live.
The online retail giant will start charging sales tax in eight additional states in coming years, starting with California and Pennsylvania in September, as it puts down physical roots in more places. Amazon already collects sales tax in six states.
That means many customers will have to dig a little deeper into their pockets when buying on the Internet, which some people see as a refuge from sales taxes.

Source.

Honestly no idea where to even post this.

This will definitely change where people buy their products from. Amazon seems to have the lowest price in computer parts now days too....

Totally sucks. Last place that doesn't suck in Cali to buy with no tax. The government here threw a fit to get them to have to tax people here. I guess it is quite a bit of money that this state should get but still.

This is so true. Once Newegg started charging me sales tax because of their warehouse in Edison, NJ I stopped buying from them, added Amazon Prime, and now buy everything through them. I also go to Microcenter, but that's for CPU's and the 3.5% sales tax.

Well I've got over a year and I don't buy there much. Sucks for those who use it a lot though.

The state I live in could same day be determined on whether or not Amazon collects sales tax there, that's how much I use it. Thankfully, Maryland is good for the foreseeable future.
