I placed an order at PSA yesterday and was charged sales tax for the first time. I sent an email seeking clarification and received this response:
“The decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., et al, overturned prior Supreme Court precedent in Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, which previously required retailers to have a physical presence in a state beyond merely shipping goods in order to require a retailer to collect and remit sales taxes from those in-state customers. Going forward, PSA will be collecting and remitting sales tax in those states which require such.”
I am sure that other major retailers will start applying sales tax soon, if they haven’t already. It was fun while it lasted.
This doesn’t affect every state. Here is a link showing the affected states:
