Amazon collects (not "charges") the tax for CT also, but not every
order is taxed. Only if Amazon is the seller, not if they just process
the order but the actual seller is third party.
Minor nitpick. People commonly say a store charges sales tax. The state
actually charges the tax, the seller merely collects it for them. Thay
don't like it any more than we do.
That makes sense, and you're right. Neither item was shipped (or
sold) from their location. OTOH, the DVD came from 20 miles south of
here, still in Maryland. It was only $2.95 plus 3.95 shipping bu
that is still 18cents sales tax they don't seem to have collected.
Maybe it was included in the price?
BTW, I could have bought a new DVD from Amazon for only 4$ more,
instead of the used one I did buy, but to get shipping included, I
would have to put together a $49 order. Much easier to buy from
someone else, though Amazon gets a cut.
BTW, they still haven't billed me for either item, and the DVD is
already here. It took 36 hours. Oh, that's why this is not a good
test, because neither item was shipped by Amazon!
I know. I'm just saying it the way I usually, nay always, hear it.
Spoken like someone who owns a store, but I don't think you do. Maybe
someone in your family does.
