Here is a question for the wise and well-informed. You subscribe to a publication that comes from another state. Can that publisher charge you sales tax from both the state of origin and the state where it was sold?

The quick answer is no.

This is a hot button issue right now with MOST sellers trying to avoid the responsibility to charge
tax for the OTHER state and most don't unless they have brick and mortar operations there.

As far as charging for THEIR state... it's hard to imagine a circumstance where that would apply.
You (the buyer) aren't there and even if you were there in person you c/should still be able to
request a refund of sales taxes paid elsewhere.

My understanding is no. Currently sale tax is charged in the state the transaction occurs, and if the business does not have a legal presence in that state it does not charge sales tax on the transaction.

Internet taxation may change this general rule, but I am not familiar with any of the new internet rules coming out.

Thank you both. I just wanted to be sure I have my thinking cap on straight before I talk to them. It seems to me to be double taxation. They are to call me Friday and clarify. I truly believe they've made an honest mistake and will say so. We shall see.
