I just read that Amazon and Texas have reached an agreement for the online retailer to begin collecting sales tax beginning July 1.
Does anyone know more about this and how it will work? Does Amazon collect sales tax in your state? If so, do you notice any difference in their pricing since they started (i.e., lower prices to compete with brick and mortar in light of tax)?
I'm withholding renewal of my Prime membership until I see how this plays out. Over the last 10-12 years I've spent thousands with Amazon. I hope they do something to counter the effect of Texas' 8.25% sales tax.
