I heard about NY state now requiring Amazon to submit sales tax to them. I think that is so sad. It's one of the great pleasures of buying items online! Free shipping, often prices cheaper than the store on items because they don't have the store overhead and also no sales tax!

But my friend in KS said that her latest order was subject to sales tax. News to me so I looked it up.

It lists NY as being newly charged (so glad Amazon is contesting this decision) but it lists a few other states as being charged sales tax on their items, wondering how long this has been?

In times where we need to shop around for the best price and we already pay a lot in taxes I find this difficult to swallow.
