Washington State sale tax now on internet purchases
« on: January 02, 2019, 03:16:36 PM »
Hi WASAAC members,

I just made a purchase from a vendor (out of state from Washington State) on this site, off a popular auction site and was hit with a $27 sale tax.  This was painful.  Be on the look out for future purchases.  I am not sure how it works with purchases from out of state individuals that are not businesses.  This must be a new Washington State law on internet purchases as of 1-1-19. Big ticket items for me might be going to Oregon now.  Dang  >:(

Any body else experience this new law in the other states?

Hi Cory,

Same thing just happened to me, bought a small item yesterday from an out-of-state seller with an ebay store and got taxed, forgot about the new law.

We have that in NY but it is largely voluntary. On your NYS income tax form, there is a question about you purchasing out of state items on internet sellers like Ebay.

Hi 2112,

The surprise was during checkout with PayPal after an eBay Buy-It-Now.  It was painful.  I expect internet sales could drop because people will want to find other ways to save money and not pay the tax.  I have friends and family in Oregon that I might be using their addresses, depending who I am going to see next.

Keep putting Democrats in office.   B.O.H.I.C.A.  You'll understand this acronym if you are prior military.
