    As for firearms purchased on line, I've never personally encountered. Bass Pro and Cabella's both have physical presence in TN. So if I were to buy from them on line, I'd get taxed. There was ONE FFL in MD I did business with that added MD taxes to transfers. I only used him once as none of the others added the MD tax.
    I guess that's why I'm being charged sales tax but I'm not aware of an Amazon presence in Nebraska. Even ebay is charging sales tax as well as other online vendors.

    Vendor agreements with the states.

Governments will always find a way to reach deeper into our pockets.

    MI first passed a law stating you had to claim out of state (mail order) purchases on your state income tax. Very few people did. The new law requires retailers shipping to MI addresses must collect sales tax. I have no idea how MI collects that tax when the retailer is out of state?

    This tax collection is online retailers covering their bases.

    Maybe so for some ammo but not all. I refuse to buy the 20-25 round packaging of premium self defense ammo at a dollar a round or so available locally unless there is no alternative. By buying the 50 round packaging of LEO intended ammo I can buy cheaper online even with shipping and tax. The further trick is to save up a bit and buy a case and get the free shipping available from some sellers.

    Just bought 1K rounds of ammo from Palmetto State Armory. Got the free shipping. They did tax me. Really gonna have to watch shipping, taxes and credit card fees to make sure purchases are worth it. Nickels and dimes add up quickly.
