Sales tax

Went to order pg materials, as I have many times before. Noticed it’s charging me sales tax now when it hasn’t before. I’m in Tennessee, so unless I’m missing some new news, I shouldn’t be paying tax, right? Wondering if it’s a glitch or if anyone else has noticed.

Got my last PG shipment from Tennessee. I would be surprised if you hadn’t been charged tax.

Ah, just re checked and it did charge me tax for the lens I ordered most recently. Didn’t notice. It definitely hadn’t previously though. Thanks!

From what I understand, the Federal laws related to sales tax collection have recently changed. Some states are already phased in; others (like California) convert over later this year. I think Tennessee is already there. If you buy from Ebay or Amazon or whatever large platforms, eventually you will need to start paying sales tax. The platform will collect / remit/ report on it to the appropriate states; individual sellers will not be involved.

You can thank South Dakota for that.

Just an FYI you always had to pay tax, however like most Americans you probably didn’t report your out of state purchases.
