That's what I was thinking happened here. I think Amazon negotiated a deal with TX Comptroller that they could avoid collecting sales tax for some time on items shipped from out of state, but I'm betting that provision had a sunset clause, and the sun has probably set on it.
Honestly, I don't pay that much attention to it. We live out in the sticks, so our retailing options are quite limited, so we depend on Amazon quite a lot for our shopping needs. Even if we have to pay sales tax, it's still better than having to spend a couple hours driving to a B&M box to find and buy things. Access to a variety of retailers is one thing I miss about living in a bigger city. But there's WAY more I don't miss!
