Tax on Internet sales is different. Each state has slightly different rules. You can look up your states rules here:http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/ ... -laws.html
Many states require Internet sales tax when the vendor has an in-state presence. What defines a presence depends on how you states sales tax laws are written. Using the work "nexus" in the law broadens the vendors that must collect.
It's just a matter of time before most or all states will be collecting Internet sales tax. Amazon just started collecting tax on CA sales. Rumor has it Amazon is proposing to large states they will collect sales tax if they get preferred treatment in locating distribution centers near large cities. The apparent master plan is to offer same day delivery on Amazon orders. Place your order by 10 AM and you get it the same day. Product comes from a local distribution center and delivered by a local delivery service. If they pull it off, it will change the face of all retail sales. Local stores are toast, especially those without large Internet sales also.
