Adios, Tax-Free Books on Amazon

I know Amazon is what’s most dividing the country right now. *wink*

And now they’re becoming even more divisive. Up until now there were a couple of states Amazon was not collecting sales tax in because they didn’t have a physical presence, but no more! Amazon will begin collecting sales tax in every state with statewide sales tax. My reaction is IT’S ABOUT TIME!

Years ago when I first began my relationship with Amazon I paid no sales tax because the company had yet to expand into Texas. But those days ended long ago. As a result I try to buy from third party sellers as often as I can to avoid the sales tax. But honestly, I don’t even spend that much on the site. I’d say between $300-$500 a year. And even with that relatively low amount I still feel like I’m getting my money’s worth.

Are you feeling any kind of way about the sales tax

  1. I wasn’t aware that they were not imposing sale tax for all states with statewide sale tax. I moved to OR about 7 years ago. It took me a while to get used to the idea of not having sales tax, but now it has become second nature. Although we are certainly reminded when tax season rolls around πŸ˜‰


  2. If people are freaking out about this, they need to calm the punk down. Taxes, in general, are part of life. Like you said, Amazon is still worth it, financially, for all the deals and discounts they have. I spend a fair amount on there every year. No regrets.
