How long will Adorama offer no tax?

1 month 1 week ago #668911 by Owen
I think everyone else is charging tax.  Adorama doesn't.  How long can we expect this?  I have some upgrades I want to make, however would prefer to wait till 2020.  However if no tax won't be around, then  I'll need to make the move quicker.  

Thank you

Any sellers charge me tax and I won't do business with them. I live in a tax free state and I won't add to a tax state's cash scams.

Why so serious?

I was under the impression that this all changed in January, and everyone had to collect sales taxes across state lines (as appropriate). But I can find no supporting information.

Adorama may not be collecting it now, but that may change soon.

I'm sure the clock is ticking, the states want to make sure they earn (or take) what they feel they are owed.

My understanding was you are only charged tax for online purchases if there is a physical location in your state such as an Amazon warehouse, Walmart, etc.  I could be wrong.

Understatement.  So much will be changing in the next few years.  Today will be known as the good old days soon enough!

A lawsuit could be expected soon by non tax states. Alao, a walmart in MY state would be prosecuted if they tried to charge a sales tax.

Non sequitor. Your local Walmart doesn't engage in online sales. walmart.com is handled elsewhere, and that's how manages the tax collection. If an out-of-state customer shopped online and wanted to pick up in that store, the central location would handle the sales tax as appropriate.

Sales tax is based upon where the purchaser lives, not the seller. The nexus rule applies to the purchaser's location.

You live in a non-tax state. Do you pay sales tax on Amazon purchases? They have at least one fulfillment center in NH, but I'm guessing you don't get charged?

Nope, they'll ship from any store with the stock you're after, same with home depot, Lowes, etc.
I live in non sales tax New Hampshire, and you're correct....I can buy online from a taxable state and I won't pay the tax.  I am shipped product from lots of different Amazon sites and still pay no tax, nor will I in the future.

My point is that I don't see that changing, even if it changes for every other state that has a sales tax.

I understood your point. Here in NH a sales or income tax will rile the natives more than gun control.....
