Default Oh WOW! Blowout sales tax in VA

So I just moved to VA, and was super excited to make an order for the Superbowl promo. Well, I see that I now have to pay sales tax! I completely forgot about that little addition. It adds 10$ to the order, but that can still add up. I love Blowout, so I bit the bullet and purchased. But I may have to reconsider on future orders.

I know there are a lot of VA members here. Have you guys bit the bullet and just payed the extra costs? Or have you cut back on wax?

I don't mind paying the sales tax since I get my orders the next day with the free shipping option. It's nice not having to wait to get boxes.

Technically you are responsible to pay sales tax on all of your purchases that are subject to tax. If you purchase out of state to avoid sales tax you are still liable to pay your home state for that tax. Many states are pushing the enforcement of this tax in one way or another.

so long as you don't get double-bounced, I don't have a problem paying taxes from an out of state order. Now, if both states try to tax you for the same purchase, then I have an issue.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

Is it not true that if there is not a store of that kind (for example, Best Buy) and you order online, then you do not have to pay sales tax?

EXAMPLE:
No Best Buy's in NC.
I order online.
Therefore I do not have to pay sales tax?

There are Best Buys in NC.
I order online.
Therefore I pay sales tax.

^IS that correct?

I could be wrong but I believe that is correct. I work in sales and our company is based out of Wisconsin, but we only charge sales tax to orders shipping to the states that we have road-salesman presence in (we don't have brick and mortar type locations).

Thanks for the comments guys.
And yes, I am not sure what the other guy was talking about. For online sales, you usually only have to pay sales tax if it is sold in the state you live in.

Look at it this way, least your tax rate isn't 9.8% like it is here.

Jetson is correct. Most states have sales tax and use/usage tax. Sales tax is applied to in-state transactions, and is point-of-sale. Use or usage tax is applied to out-of-state transactions, and is reported when you file your state income tax return (not sure how it works for states like Texas or Washington that do not have State Income Tax).
