Sales Tax - Summit vs Jegs

I ordered some AC parts today. Jegs was a couple dollars cheaper until I used my PayPal and then they added sales tax. I purchased through them in September and no sales tax was charged at that time. I did not complete the order and went to Summit and they did not charge sales tax to AZ for now. It appears the collection of sales tax on Internet sales is on the increase. I imagine Summit will catch up with the others before long.

It was a lawsuit filed by the AG of South Dakota that is now forcing out of state companies to charge sales tax to those who order online. It was good while it lasted. Here where I live in southern AZ, it was almost a 10% savings, but I don't think they're including city taxes....yet.

I hear you about the local city sales taxes. Like you, in AZ and settled in Prescott. We looked at surrounding cities of Prescott Valley and Chino Valley, both add 2% city taxes on top of 8+ percent county sales taxes. Sales tax rates have to be a consideration anymore in choosing a place to live now. For me I have to buy almost all of my parts online as there is not much in the way of local parts retailers in the area. So the Supreme Court decision will be a large hit to our buying power. I just hope the states put the extra income to good use. Yeah I know about government and spending, but I can hope anyway.

Summit recently opened a retail store in the DFW area and began charging TX residents sales tax as required by TX law. Jegs does not have a location in TX and was still not charging sales tax to TX residents as of my last order. Since they have Price Matching guess which one I use.

Summit has been charging sales tax to all surrounding states to the states in which they have stores for several months now.

Like Lee said, it was good while it lasted.

Exactly my experience.

Louisiana charges 4.45% state sales tax and the cities charge what ever they want, it usually adds up to around 9.75 or 10%. However, I live outside the city limits and there is no Parish (County) tax. Just the state levy. But don't think I'm getting away cheap, everything else here is taxed including labor and food.

I've been getting sales tax at Jegs in Texas. According to their website, they started doing this October 1.

I ordered parts from Summit Racing this week. I was surprised that, as yet, no sales tax charges for orders to AZ.

Summit and Jegs both have a list on their websites of the states in which they charge sales tax (and the corresponding percentages they use).
Summit still does not charge sales tax in quite a few states, California included. Jegs does charge sales tax in California, but I think I remember seeing that their were a handful of states in which they did NOT charge sales tax.
Technically (by the letter of the law) it is the purchasers responsibility to declare out of state purchases on which they were not charged the appropriate “use tax” and pay that tax...not that anybody does.
