First time I’ve seen that on my amazon receipt:

BTW, ordered it through Instapundit. (Does Glenn’s cut include a percentage of the tax?)

  2. It has been doing that since mid-Sept. See this LA Times article.

    CA just increased increased the sales tax too. Grr.

  4. Starting next-year, here in NJ we’re going to be paying 7%-sales tax through Amazon. They sold-us-out in-exchange for sweetheart financing from the State on two-million-sqft of warehouse space that will primarily service New York City. Grrrr …

  5. Glad I live in NH where we do not have a sales tax.

    So Amazon orders won’t be rising for me.

  6. My idiot RINO AL governor wants an Amazon sales tax; however, with the Republicans in control of the legislature, I don’t see this happening.

  7. I work around this tax by having my sister in MN place my Amazon orders.

  10. Amazon started collecting sales tax in Texas in June after an agreement was reached that the state claimed 269 million dollars was owed by Amazon was settled. Our state comptroller says that she and other states are wanting a federal law to clarify this.

    ”n a news release Combs thanked Amazon for moving forward and encouraged Congress to act too. “This is an important step in leveling the playing field in Texas; however, Congress should enact federal legislation that will give states access to revenues that are already due, which would resolve this issue fairly for all retailers and all state,” she said.

  11. Congress has extended the sales tax deduction on a yearly basis up until last year. In August it was reported that it would be extended in 2012 by another yearly authorization. Something tells me that the Fiscal Cliff will eliminate that deduction in negotiations.
