Personally, I can see some great opportunities for new business in sales tax exempt states. One could create a po box type mail center for buyers in high tax states and then mail the item to the subscriber tax free as this is address based.

Here in Detroit there are many businesses that provide po boxes to Canadians looking to avoid tax and excessive shipping on bought goods and no one bats an eye. I am sure the Canadian tax authorities hate it, but they advertise openly.

I know people are going to jump on this as working the system, but as I consider sales tax on used goods a sham in excess of skipping tax on on those goods...I couldn't care less.

I'm a Canadian using one of those PO boxes to save on the cost of shipping, but I can assure you that I still pay taxes on every item that is purchased. Items still go through the regular import process and taxes are calculated which I am responsible for.

The only real benefit is that the actual cost of shipping is lower - which is still great as I'm probably paying a third of what I used to haha.

Ryan, you got me. Until I looked it up, I assumed Fortnite skins referred to a condom that lasted two weeks.

That’s classic Frank! I have 3 boys (15, 13, and 10) and Fortnite is bigger to these kids than cards are to us cardboard nuts. I have grow to hate Fortnite, especially when my kids fight me over spending $$ on Fortnite skins. If the states were smart, they would tax Fortnite - I don’t think internet purchases of games that are streamed, or the intangibles purchased on those games (like skins, virtual weapon, extra lives, etc) are taxable yet.

I'm in Illinois and added an item from CA seller to check what you mentioned here. Did not see sales tax added to invoice.

Try that with other CA sellers and see if it is added. I'm out here and once in awhile when I do a test by adding something to my cart, a CA seller won't have the sales tax factored in for some reason. Don't know if it's on purpose or some some sort of crack in the system.

If you live in CA and buy a card from a CA seller, you get taxed.

Yeah, why let facts get in the way...

Red box (added from the actual listing) shows item location as California. I live in California, and like I specifically said, sometimes the tax doesn't show up.


Another two CA cards I put in my cart cost around $400 and had tax of $32+ listed...

Without knowing for sure, I would hypothesize that eBay is now adding sales tax for specific states when out-of-state purchases are being shipped to that state (i.e. Use Tax), but is still leaving it up to sellers who reside in those states to collect and remit Sales Tax to their state as before. This would make it appear hit-and-miss for application of sales tax for in-state buyers. Did the Wayfair court ruling that all of this was based on even speak to application of in-state sales tax for internet purchases?

I haven't tested this theory. Just throwing it out there for consideration.
