    Amazon Charges Tax Now?

    Apparently, in some states, such as Wisconsin, Amazon.com is now charging sales tax...

    This just seems weird... I might make less Amazon purchases now. Sucks, because it used to be my go-to shopping site.

    The states might be forcing them to do it like some did to ebay. It's pretty crappy if you ask me.

    I'm from Ontario, so I'm used to it. If I order something from Ontario I get charged tax, if I order from anywhere else I don't. Kind of annoying, but whatever. The stuff from Ontario gets here the fastest.

    You can pretty much thank the "great" state of Kalifornia for forcing the issue and making Amazon go along with it! The state was going to force Amazon either out of the state (insane!) or levy hefty fines against them if they didn't comply, and after a long battle they aquiesced!

    According to my "Tax Guy" apparently you are supposed to keep track of your online purchases and pay the appropriate tax for your state anyway. No one ever does it though.

    My Tax Guy is actually one my best friend's wife whom is a CPA. He gets free tech advice and support and I get my taxes done for free and financial advice. I think he is getting the better end of the deal though especially since his wife and her father's firm is doing the work for me.

    I noticed this a few weeks ago cause shipping to my address in one state was cheaper than my address in another state due to sales tax (I live between two places). At the time I just thought there wasn't sales tax in one state on what I was buying (books and clothes).

    apparently the way they have it set up is like a tariff, so it's kinda unconstitutional. Illinois rejected it calling it unconstitutional

    That's probably the most political I've ever gotten in my life. Sorry about that XD

    As a resident of IL I was surprised by this because we are run by some of the most corrupt money grubbing political whores in the country.

    hey, at least some of you aren't in Canada (I live in Quebec and it's 15% tax, because of the province (10%) and the federal tax (5%) )

    Not sure about Illinois' specific case, but it's an interesting situation because on one hand, Amazon lobbies against being held to sales taxes so it can have a somewhat unfair advantage over local businesses which are held to state tax codes.

    On the other hand, sales taxes aren't really the ideal way to go about taxation anyways. Sales taxes affect the rich much less, the proportion of income spent on many types of goods tends to fall as income rises, even if actual expenditures rise. So, proportionally, it's kind of like the working class is getting taxed more even though they can afford it the least. I'd really rather see Amazon itself get taxed more than its customers get taxed more.

    At least if you're in Canada your sales tax isn't mostly just going to the defense budget.

    I mean Amazon could've just lobbied to have IL reject taxing it, which fits the money grubbing narrative.

    Go ahead bag away.. I hate politics and most politicians in general but IL is amongst the worst. We need to bring back the days were regular citizens ran and held political offices. Career politicians are often corrupt and flat out liars and are ruining this country. They should never let being a politician a career.

    No need to drag this on though as it is off topic so I am sorry for bringing it up

    Think by Numbers-Corporate Welfare vs Social Welfare
    Yeah, if by 'people who don't even try in life' you mean CEOs who profit off the labor of others. Plus a lot of social welfare indirectly subsidizes corporations like Amazon or Walmart by enabling them to pay workers even less. Full time employees earning low wages = you get to pay for their food instead of their employer.

    Here in Ohio, they have been working on the internet tax bill for a whiel now to require any company who does online business with Ohio to collect Ohio sales tax. It's not happened yet, but it's just a matter of time. Right now, they only have to if they have a corporate presence directly in the state. Amazon doesn't have a direct corporate presence.

    It's actually really bad. They are incredibly offensive drivers. Really fast, cut you off, that kinda thing. You can definitely tell a difference when you're in IL, as opposed to WI.

    This is just in general, does not apply to all, of course

    I concur with this.. It takes all my energy to keep my road rage in check most days as I am almost killed almost every day by some idiot that cannot drive and cannot put down their damn cellphones and pay attention to the road.

    I'm extremely surprised that Amazon.com hasn't included taxes already. It only makes sense that the government would put a sales tax on a sale. Now, the real dilemma here is property tax. What is up with that?! Even if you fully pay off your mortgage, you still have to continually pay taxes or they can seize your house!

    Yeah, nobody knows this, so nobody does it. And the people who do know about it act like they don't.

    But you're right. You're supposed to include all of your untaxed online purchases on your tax form and pay taxes on them at that time of year.

    It's hard to believe that they don't count distribution centers as a "corporate presence". I'm sure Amazon has a distribution center in Ohio, don't they?

    You already do now, if you itemize your deductions. If you take the standard deduction, you don't have to include tax return money, though.

    That's what we're doing, too. Since we won't be playing it until Christmas day, we're not too worried about getting it on release day.

    I feel like I've been paying tax for awhile too through Amazon. Just looking at their website, these are the states where they charge sales tax:

    • Arizona
    • California
    • Connecticut
    • Georgia
    • Kansas
    • Kentucky
    • Massachusetts
    • New Jersey
    • New York
    • North Dakota
    • Pennsylvania
    • Texas
    • Virginia
    • Washington
    • West Virginia
    • Wisconsin
