Normally, you only pay taxes in states where that company has a retail presence. If there's a retail Microsoft presence here in Alabama, it's the first I've heard of it. But sure enough, they've charged me tax lately. I found that kinda' odd. And it's also selective, apparently... because I got taxed on games that I bought, but not on the last DLC for Dishonored, which makes me wonder if they're differentiating between the two. It's very odd.
Either way, not a dealbreaker. I'll go digital for multiplayer titles that I know I'll keep playing for a long time and get random invites for, and single player stuff that I'll beat-and-delete, maybe go with discs.
