    Joejoe, it’s not a new tax. it’s just a loophole closed. and the federal Gov isn’t involved at all in sales tax (so far…)

    We need to promote the tax-free alternative’s to Amazon, as they “close the loop”

    Consumer collection is enforced once a consumer is audited. This is from a former state tax auditor I spoke to.

    Amazon only collects sales tax in CA on goods sold by Amazon. Independent sellers selling on Amazon may or may not collect CA sales tax on products.

    Couldn’t you get a Ink Card and purchase AZ GC and use those to purchase? 5X at OD and how would they know what your purchased?

    Would they accept tax exempt (resale) status? Would that throw me off prime?

    Very annoying- I always paid the Safe Harbor tax (one sum to cover all internet tax) at the end of the year, plus sales tax on expensive (>$100) purchases. Now will I have to pay taxes on Amazon goods (big percentage of my online shopping) AND the Safe Harbor tax for the other sites? Way more expensive.

    I do not think that you will pay tax on diapers/wipes.
    Anyone from NY can confirm?
