Glad I get most everything online & will sure watch for this crapola. Any online vendors who charge it will be crossed off my list.
I hate to give you the bad news. But technically you are supposed
to "voluntarily" pay tax on products purchased over the internet..
Key here is voluntary, like pay it or we can nail yah.. So far they are not enforcing it, but it is coming...
How do I know? My uncle Marv's son purchased vending machines from New Jersey. He was kind of cheating on the take and the IRS had enough.
Looking to shut his business down, they busted him for not paying taxes on the purchased interstate sale of the machines.
He gets out of the big house in a few years, he will be fine.
" For instance, some states require that whenever you purchase an item online that is not subject to sales tax, you must report that sale
to the state tax agency and pay sales tax on it. However, not every state does this."
