I live in Illinois and although I can avoid the sales tax from ordering from Amazon, I still have to file a use tax. Does your state charge sales tax from ordering the PS4 online?

I live in NH, so there's no Sales tax, so I got it pretty good for that.

If you have Family in NH, or a friend or something, you could have it shipped to them to avoid it, and then have them ship it to you, or go visit and pick It up.

I have someone else do my taxes, so I was probably charged sales tax all the time.

buy one on ebay after launch. That way you don't commit fraud

Buy new things on ebay? that's... an oxymoron...

Why not just pay the tax?

I probably did, otherwise the IRS would have been at my door already.

Because on a $400 purchase sales tax adds up, especially considering you will be possibly getting a game or two, extra controller, PS Plus...in MA this could easily add up to another $40 bucks or more when all is said and done, that could have been spent on something else.

Luckily for me I live near the border of NH.
