Boooooo! Amazon Will Start Charging Tax Nationwide On April 1st
 

 
image

One of Amazonís biggest early advantages over brick-and-mortar retailers will disappear for good next month. The company will on April 1st start collecting sales in the states of Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, and New Mexico, according to a report from CNBC. That means Amazon will collect sales tax in all 45 states that require it, ending one of the companyís more drawn-out regulatory f*ghts that the e-commerce giant had resigned itself to losing years ago. (For the record, Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon do not have a state sales tax.)

Amazon first began relenting on the sales tax issue when it began opening fulfillment and data centers around the country to speed up shipping times and build out a more robust physical network. Simply by having a physical presence in certain states mandated that Amazon had to start collecting sales tax, while in other situations the company worked out deals with state governments to arrange for the collecting of sales tax on online purchases.

More recently, Amazon has been more diligent about moving to collect sales tax in the remaining holdout states, adding 10 more states effective March 1st. Now, with the addition of the final five, Amazon is finally on par with its physical counterparts. Yet itís quite unlikely the companyís growing dominance in all forms of retail will be curbed by a brick-and-mortar chain any time soon.

You can still get tax-free orders by purchasing products shipped by Amazon but sold by a 3rd-party (that isn't located in your state), but still. image

well my prime subscription is about to come to an end. a lot of their advantages are pretty much almost gone. It's almost always more cost effective now just to price match. Especially if you paying sales tax on anything sold from Amazon. Wonder if their prime user base drops significantly because of this.

My state (Alabama) started collecting taxes from Amazon in October or November of last year. Since then I always make sure to look for 3rd parties fulfilled by Amazon or go to other sites that don't collect taxes to purchase (BHPhoto Video, NewEgg, Adorama, etc).

Alabama is talking about trying to collect tax on Netflix next. They need to get out of here with that crap.

That usually be product that is in an Amazon warehouse in your state.

And if you are in the same area that it's same day free shipping.

Say you buy a $1,000 TV on Amazon. After 8% (that's what Alabama collects at least) sales tax, you've just spent an additional $80. I don't know about you, but I'm not looking to make any charitable donations to the state if I have a way not to. Rich or poor --- I'd rather keep money I don't have to give away.

I cancelled an order yesterday because I mistakenly bought the product directly from Amazon. I re-ordered through a 3rd party fulfilld by Amazon --- Saved myself $1.30 & still got Prime Shipping. Over the period of a year, those savings can add up. Maybe it's no big deal to you, but if I can save money...I'd rather save it no matter how little.

Your still buying off Amazon though. Dudes are on here like there isn't other sellers selling the same product for less or at the same price with no tax. They here like fu*k Amazon ibwill never buy anything again.

You can get deals without prime. I keep telling cats. Been using Amazon for almost 10 years. All you gotta do is message the seller right after you order an item. And many times they'll let you get a deal. They can take shipping off. There were even times they bumped me up to next day delivery for no extra charge. Might not work every time for every single dealer. But its worth a shot.You just gotta know how to talk. I make good money too. But I still like to save. Sales tax is a pretty big deal if you're buying pricey items.
