ScubaToys will only collect sales tax for in-state purchases. But legally, you are supposed to report and submit equivalent "use tax" to your home state (in most states). Few people do and they don't generally pursue individuals.

Sales taxes are charged based on the shipping address.

If you live in Montana, but drive into Texas to make the purchase, you'll pay tax.

OTOH, if you live in Texas, but have the gear shipped to your friend in Montana, you won't pay taxes. (To ScubaToys... general tax law is outside the scope of this post!)

Obama has absolutely nothing to do with the sales taxes in your state, despite your snide remarks.

lol:smiley36: more of a joke not a snide remark Though I am a conservative I do not blame everything on the OTHER party. Again just a joke. If Bush was still in office I would have used his name or even mccain. I guess I could blame it on Mitch Danials (indiana governor) But I do not see sales tax as a problem to blame on someone. Though I still am up for not having to pay it. They got enough out of me last year on my 07 truck and the jeep I traded it for.
