Default Web Order Question

Do you get charged tax for stuff you buy on the interwebzz? I went back and looked at all my latest amazon purchases and nope, no tax. I have just recently bought a smartphone over the interwebzzz and they charged me tax. I called them and asked them to justify this tax and they gave me some long winded excuse that I really didn't care about, I just wanted to know how and why they charged me tax.

So, what's the deal? I thought congress had to vote on this whole internet tax thing, have they voted "yes" on this? What am I missing?

If they have a physical store located in the same state as you- They would need to charge tax. If not they don't have too. Feds are trying to change this fyi. Taxes based on the location of the store not your tax rate.

They don't have a shop in this state. I tried to call BS on them but they insisted it had somthing to do with the cell phone service in this state?

If they have a physical presence in the state you live in my understanding is they can charge you sales tax

I am assuming you live in one of the 25 states that Amazon doesn't collect tax in

Would explain why you don't pay tax on Amazon, but might on other retailers

I live in Wyoming and no, I don't pay tax on my interwebzz orders from the amazonian.

No, I'm ordering a refurbished older 5S. I got it because it's cheaper. Then they throw a tax on it, plus shipping and I'm kinda screwed.
