Sales tax question

I recently ordered a roland vdrum kit from AMS. I live in las vegas and AMS is registered in nevada and NJ. I saw in my order that i was charged sales tax which was like $263. When i recently checked the tracking number the item was being shipped out from NJ. Can they still charge me sales tax if the item i bought is literally located in a different state (NJ)??

I just want to make sure if they have a right to do this.......thats a lot for sales tax.

Re: Sales tax question

Sounds like they could. The sale was made in Nevada, and they shipped it from their warehouse in Jersey.

You should have bought somewhere else man.

Re: Sales tax question

It is possible. Amazon charges sales tax to everyone and so do many companies like Dell, etc.

Re: Sales tax question

Yes, they can charge you sales tax. It's because they have a business registered in the state that you live in.

Re: Sales tax question

Even if they hadn't charged you sales tax, you'd be responsible to calculate it yourself and mail in the payment.
