Default Shipping to CA?

Anyone else had problems shipping to CA from Amain? I'm not sure if this is correct or not, but when I ordered all my stuff from there the other day, they charged something like $58 CA sales tax! Tower never did this? Am I just going to have to ship my orders home and have my dad send them to the base if I order from Amain?

I may be wrong here, but isn't amainhobbies in California?

Every online store should be charging sales tax for California.

You were charged sales tax because you and the shop reside in CA. Tower is out of state so there were no sales tax charged.

I see the word "base" AFB, are you on a military base? if so the USPS requires a commercial invoice of some kind and this will jack up the fees/taxes...

Nothing special is needed and there are no additional charges.

There are no special charges to bring packages on base, that's why this surprised me.
