...I live in NJ and they charge NJ sales tax on all orders, so I also have a financial reason not to buy from them online these days.
You are not going to buy from them because they support your local economy??? Funny how nobody wants to pay tax and yet everyone wants to have their streets paved or to have the police come when they call 911.
Governor Christie would just buy some more cheese burgers with my stipend! :-)
(BTW...I pay PLENTY of taxes...i live in NJ ..we are taxed to death here..toll roads, bridges, tunnels, pay beaches, etc..etc..etc...I do not need to be chastised for making a perfectly legal choice to keep more of my hard-earned cash in my pocket..just like Apple or Mitt Romney..It's the USA..I look for loopholes...I take my power back wherever possible!)
In this case it's not a loophole - you are legally required to pay taxes on those purchases, whether the business collects it at the time of sale or not. Very few people do, though, so the Marketplace Fairness Act has been created so that out of state businesses will have to collect it up front.
Here's the specific (current) law in NJ: http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/su_5.shtml
Quite right. In any case, Adorama has a warehouse in NJ -- I've had items shipped from it -- so they are legally bound to collect taxes for all orders shipping to NJ.
