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.
