Newegg stops collecting NY State sales tax

Newegg doesn’t care what the State of New York says about collecting sales tax from NY residents and I’d like to give them a high five. Seriously, NY can take that Amazon tax and shove it.

“After careful review and consideration, we are pleased to inform you that we have stopped collecting New York sales tax, effective August 21, 2008,” Newegg spokesman Bernard Luthi wrote in a Friday e-mail to customers. “This decision was driven by your direct and candid feedback and our continued commitment to you as our valued customers.”

“While Newegg no longer charges sales tax to its New York customers … you may still have an obligation to pay New York State use tax on your purchases,” Luthi warned.
