Sounds like NewsEgg now has a physical presence in PA and is now
required to collect sales tax in PA. Since they are based in TN I have
avoided using them because TN sales tax pretty much negates any savings
they can offer.
Basically if a store has a presence in a state they are required to
collect sales tax for sales within that state. Amazon just opened
centers in TN, therefore fulfilled by Amazon gets taxed.

> Did anyone else receive a similar notice? I find it strange that all of a sudden NewEgg has started charging Sales Taxes in the state of Pennsylvania for ANY sales made over the Internet. Why this sudden change, and when was this so called Sales Tax Bill approved. This is the 1st time I've even heard of it and this was the 1st (and only) such notice that I've received (from anyone or any place) and it makes me want to ask questions about it.
> I knew that Pennsylvania was one of many states that (up until now) didn't charge a Sales Tax on items sold over the Internet and this was one of the things I liked about living here. Now this has changed. Have there been other states that have been added to the list that now charge Sales Taxes on sales over the Internet as well or are we the only ones?

> P.S. Does anyone also have a list of states that do charge Sales Taxes and the ones that don't???
