Sales tax is based on "nexus" and the case was made that Amazon has "nexus" in TX especially when they opened up a distribution center inside the state.
Now in Va we are charged from Amazon, Camping World and Walmart etc even if the item was shipped from another state. They all have locations in Va now, matters not if the item did not come from that location. Now if I were to buy something from Tweeties or PPL etc that have no locations in Va, no tax. Same goes for ebay, vendors from Va charge state tax, vendors from out of state do not. I have a feeling one day we will pay taxes on all items, regardless of where purchased. States are not happy losing all that revenue to internet purchases.

We have an Amazon center here in SC but they got a sweetheart deal to not collect taxes for a couple of years. We have been notified that that is in the past.

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!
