Default Tax Axed?

This is weird. I won a card on ebay, and when I went to pay for it, my winning amount was listed plus shipping, nothing else. NO TAX. Remitted payment through PayPal and nothing changed. Still no tax charged. Save for the very early days of ebay's tax collection, this has never happened to me. Since the card was almost $100, it became a 'savings' of $8 or so, which is nice.

Anyone know if this was just a glitch? Or is there a reason for it? The card is out of The Garden State and I'm in CA. There was nothing in the auction description regarding a tax-free certificate or anything along those lines, and I certainly don't have one. Did I just get 'lucky'?? (I know people will say I need to pay a usage tax or whatever, blah, blah, blah, but that's not the point.)

I paid for my Leland's winnings today and they said they aren't collecting taxes for customers outside of NJ.

To see if it was just a NJ thing, I tried putting different items in my cart from a wide variety of Jersey sellers, and each and every time I went to check-out, tax was added. I'm convinced (woo hoo!!) my experience was nothing more than dumb luck.

I'm in California and bought a card this weekend on ebay from a seller in Florida. They charged tax as usual on my purchase.

It may have been a tax holiday. Usually it is for back to school items only however, some states have a broader variety of items that are exempt. Maryland was this past weekend and I believe Virginia was the weekend before.
