- Next thing I realized, for NJ, you pay sales tax! That's like another extra $400, bam, right there it hit me.
Ummm...you do realize that you're legally obligated to pay the NJ Sales and Use Tax on those Amazon purchases, right? From NJ Pub ANJ-7: "Out-of-State Purchases Delivered to New Jersey. When taxable goods and services are purchased in another state and delivered to New Jersey for use in New Jersey, no credit is allowed for sales tax paid to the other state. Use tax is due at the rate of 7% of the purchase price, including delivery charges."
You're supposed to declare such purchases and remit the tax to the State, either separetely within 20 days or on your state income tax return. Bam, right there. Just sayin'.
Nah uhhhhh!!! I don't gotta pay no sales tax on the internet!
