No, I think online purchases should remain mostly tax free.

If they start charging tax for online purchases, I may stop buying as much online.

I think that it's 'fair' in a sense, but 'unfair' for the consumer because of shipping charges and such. I always saw it as a trade-off, taxes or shipping. I am still going to shop as much online, because most things I buy online I can't get elsewhere anyways!

I am not sure what to think of this development. I am from a state that has NO SALES TAX....so I am also not sure how this would affect me. I usually end up signing the waiver and submitting documentation when I make purchases over $100. out of state. I am usually tax exempt due to the state I live in.....and since EF is in GA--how would that affect the orders and points??

I have no problem with them charging taxes, theres no reason brick and mortar stores should loose business because they get charged tax and online sites are exempt

i think we all knew it was only a matter of time. how are they enforcing it? are they making the retailers take on that responsibility? that's going to cost consumers even more in the long run. if they don't have the retailers enforce it then it's pretty irrelevant. there are already states where you are supposed to take care of it at tax time- and how many of us are going to do that?

It should be free I dont understand why they have to always do this to us

I come from a state that charges tax anyway, so I don't really care much about it.

It was only a matter of time…

I don't mind paying a tax, but I really think that to be fair it ought to be a flat tax that is split evenly between the point of sale (store's state) and destination (customer's state).

It's ridiculous. As it is, I live in a state with one of the highest taxes.

states have been doing this for a while. I blame the voters for their blissful ignorance.

I don't really like the idea but I do enjoy shopping online so I will suck it up and pay it.

I don't like it but it won't stop me from buying online since it often has the advantage of being cheaper, and private (as in the case of sex toys.)

I think it's entirely fair, since the tax goes to support the infrastructure that makes such purchases available. Tax online purchases=keep roads up=keep UPS/USPS/Fedex delivering brown boxes of joy

SHIT! I did not know this. I live in GA, and yes, I will stop buying as much online.

I will say no, I don't like this, but only because it means chunking out MORE money when shipping charges and taxes as it is are already ridiculous! However, what is the reason behind taxing us Georgians? Anybody know? Maybe there's a real reason, but right now it sounds pretty dumb.

I don't wanna pay an extra $10 for my $100 dildos T_T

I'll continue to buy things online. There are usually great online codes and/or free shipping deals. Plus I save on gas anyway, so I don't mind paying tax.

It doesn't really apply to me since I live in Oregon we don't have a sales tax, but I don't think it's fair for others.

No, I think online sales should remain tax free. However, if it happens, there's sadly nothing one can do about it, and I will continue to buy online.

It seems silly. But won't stop. Where I live I need to order stuff online.

Without tax, I have been buying big ticket items online. If they do charge tax and the price is the same, why should I risk damage in shipping and having to wait to get an item. I will go back to using brick and mortar stores.

Here is the article explaining the changes to the sales tax laws

In short...

Stores are only required to charge sales tax for online purchases in a state if they have a physical presence in that state: a Macy’s store at Lenox Square, for example, or a call center in Alpharetta.

Georgia has expanded its definition of a “physical presence” to get more online stores to collect sales tax from their customers.

Beginning last week, that included companies that use warehouses or offices in the state, whether they own them or not. At the end of the year, it will also include companies that have click-through ads on Georgia-based websites, known as affiliate relationships.



Does that make sense?
