Default Online Purchases Sales Tax

Is all your R/C online purchases now getting nailed with Sales Tax if your state collects sales tax where you shipping to? Just wondering on say AMain, Tower, Absolute Hobbyz and others if they are now doing that. I haven't bought much R/C in the last year.

I know on ebay I think started in July and Amazon pretty much has forever in most cases. In my recent purchases on ebay I seen 2 paypal transactions, 1 for product/shipping if any and 1 for ebay sales tax.

That also depends if you are buying something new, used, or resold. Something new will always gets taxed, used a lot of the times no as it has already had the tax paid, similar to resold where if the item is sold for equal or less then the taxes are exempt if taxes have already been paid on that item, if sold for more then the taxes are collected on the difference.
