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!

They also ship UPS if the weight is over 7 pounds.

All in all, it was a very smooth transaction and I do not feel I overpaid.

Hope this helps.

P.S. The bigger retailers like WalMart have establishments in every state so not surprised there. I think Amazon does too but taxes depend on who is shipping and from where. It pays to shop around. Taxes and shipping can add up.
I have useed e trailer on a number of occasions. You will find them a pleasure to do business with. The products are name brand like everybody else sells and their shipping is fast and complete. Good luck.

No matter who you buy from, you owe the tax, and are violating Texas law if you don't pay it.

https://www.comptroller.texas.gov/ta...es/use-tax.php

Out of state sellers with no physical presence cannot be compelled to collect tax for the state, BUT as soon as they build a store/warehouse/transfer facility/etc. in the state.... As an ultimate punishment for failure to comply, the state can seize the physical assets and shut it down. Which, of course, they can't if there is nothing within the state. Hence the "Use Tax", where you as the purchaser are the ultimate responsible party to make sure the tax is paid.

Pretty much the same thing exists in most states - look up "Virginia Use Tax", etc.

Yeah, it is pretty hard for the State to go after an individual for this kind of thing, so the average guy gets by ignoring this. Which is what drives the local stores insane with the "unfair" situation. Hence repeated calls to do something on a national level, forcing all remote sellers to comply with the requirements of each state.

As far as "no shipping" - you pay one way or another. All you can do is compare one "out the door" price to another.

The only exception that I know of would be if you order on-line from a retailer who does not have a brick & mortar store in your State.
If your a federally recognized tribe and a Native American with an ID card like myself than you don't have to pay taxes I don't pay taxes on car or trailer purchases. It works well when negotiating because I don't say anything until I reach a price agreement. Once I have a price agreed upon then I say now remove the tax portion and I show them my tribal ID card. At financing I sign a form and I save a ton of money that I don't have to finance.

I don't think there are any hard and fast rules but more like "it depends".

State laws where the seller is, state laws where you are located and as the previous poster noted, your status regarding paying taxes.

Ditto

Can't beat their pricing.
If they don't have it Amazon does.
