I'm not a thread starter, but seeing as how this actually effects my plasma buying plans, I thought this would be good info.

As the title says, Amazon agreed with the State of Texas to start collecting sales tax July 1st.

This is happening all over, state by state. They just did a compromise deal in California which delayed it for a year but when it's done they will collect sales tax there too. NJ is also pushing to start charging sales tax for Amazon. Etc.

Also, I don't know if you guys in Texas are aware of this but I have never been charged tax if I buy thru a 3rd party vendor on Amazon. I even bought from Pauls via Amazon and was never charged sales tax.
