PSA: Amazon will start charging CA sales tax on Sept. 15!

So get that tax-free shopping in now, California. :0

I was going to hem and haw and try one size of boots at a time, but when DH reminded me about this, I just ordered both sizes straight away. They are also offering 20% off when you sign up for shoe/clothing emails. So for me it was kind of like a 30% off sale... who was I to argue?

    Also Amazon owns ShopBop. I found that out when I first ordered from there and couldn't figure out why I was be charged sales tax. Amazon headquarters are in Seattle, FYI.

    Thanks for the heads up! I had no idea Amazon wasn't collecting sales tax on my purchases (just went back and checked). Guess I'll be doing some shoe shopping myself.

    I think in theory they should collect sales tax so I will be gladly paying up (in fact I don't order much from them) but I understand the desire to save as well. Thanks for heads up - I didn't know they had agreed to do this.

    I had heard this might be happening. Frankly I've thought the same as Christianne for a long time- kind of thought the tax from amazon could eradicate our national debt. I shop there ALOT.
