Oh well I'm not complaining....
The trigger is whether the seller has a presence in the state you live in, regardless of the shipping source. If Amazon has a facility in your state it is likely you will be charged sales tax. As mentioned in a previous post (which I just confirmed with an order a few minutes ago) if the order is only processed by Amazon and the seller is a third party that does not have a presence in your state, you will not be charged sales tax.

I think I've spent 80% less on Amazon this year than I have in previous years. If I'm going to pay the same price on Amazon, I rather go to a brick and mortar store and get my stuff the same day. I only buy large items on Amazon now as I cannot fit large TVs in my car
