According to a post at Don’t Mess With Taxes, Amazon has reached deals with two more states to start collecting sales taxes on purchases from those states.
Nevada and Texas can now add themselves to the list of states for whom Amazon collects and submits sales-tax revenues. My state of Oklahoma isn’t one of them — yet — but I know the day is coming. Actually, since I pay my use taxes annually anyway, it’d actually be easier for me if Amazon started collecting OK sales taxes on their own. But hey — it’ll happen when it happens.
For those of you who still play the “I buy online because then I save on sales taxes!” game, well, Kay lays it out best in her post above when she says:
Yup. It’s just a matter of time before the presumed-sales-tax-free internet goes bye-bye.
The Tax Man will not be denied.
