So, Amazon's started charging tax on online purchases...

Word of warning for people living in these 16 states, Amazon has begun to charge sales tax on all online purchases made.
This slightly hampers people like me who would use Amazon due to lower prices and no tax on purchases.

Here are the 16 States
Arizona
California
Connecticut
Georgia
Kansas
Kentucky
Massachusetts
New Jersey
New York
North Dakota
Pennsylvania
Texas
Virginia
Washington
West Virginia
Wisconsin

Just a FYI in most states you still have to pay tax when you file your income tax if youbdidnt already do it at the time of purchase. They are just making it easier to pay the taxes you are obligated to pay anyway. I know you aren't advocating tax evasion.

Quit shopping at Amazon over a year ago for this exact reason.

BBY offers 2% cash back as part of their customer loyalty program.

Heck, just about any competitor with an online + physical presence >> Amazon.

Awwwww yeah, Missouri is still tax free for the time being. Amazon is getting worse and worse though, with starting to charge tax and having raised the amount needed to spend for Super Saver Shipping.

Really? I just bought something from Amazon (NY) and it has no tax.

Anyway, ebay charges no tax on used items. So there's that.

If you don't want to pay taxes you should move out of the country.
