That is partially true. If you purchase a item off line and don't pay sales tax for the state you live in you are required to contact the Department of Revenue for your state and get a form for a 1 time tax remittance and pay the sales tax yourself. Our company got audited a couple of years ago and got busted for purchasing computers on line and not remitting the sales tax. This applies to businesses and individuals. I know no one does it but it is a law and most people are unaware of the law regarding sales tax remittance.
The company you are purchasing from should have a sales tax number for all states if they are shipping to all states - they do not have to have a retail/store in every state they are just required to sign up with every Dept of Revenue and collect/pay the sales tax to each state. If the company does not charge you sales tax you are still responsible for the tax.
