This country is ridiculous, I pay enough taxes in California I barely have bread on my table, seriously can we start a revolution?

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…)

hdawg

time to order that TV from amazon

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

@Joejoe: yo, California has already been collecting sales tax on your amazon purchases. all that changed is that now you know about it.

mechi

Ebay is the way to go

thanks for the post – time to order the goodies we’ve been waiting on.

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

interested

will this apply to Zappos, as it is owned by amazon?

Abe

@Yosi:

are they asking for your credit card statments? if so it can be real trouble…

Wow. This stinks.

B&H charges tax only in NY.
drop amazon. and will use ebay as my case covers protecters and accessories sloping place.

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.

Yeruchem

MAC: That’s true for all states.

@Abe

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?

Kiva

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.

baby

If you use gift cards do they charge tax?

moe

@ baby

yes they do

abe

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

gk

I don’t have amazon Mom, but I’ve shipped diapers to NY, they do collect tax ~4.4%
