If the company has a warehouse or an office in your state they have to charge you sales tax. Like Trotter lives in Tennessee where they've got a newer Newegg warehouse so he gets charged sales tax.
It's like buying online from cirucit city or best buy if there's a store in your state you pay sales tax, too.

supposedly, there have been new rules put on internet sales. Most everything is taxed now. I noticed it when i bought my laptop. Usually, I would buy stuff online and go pick it up at the store the next day, but now theres tax so it doesn't matter.

I have a computer with stuff in it.
