Amazon Florida Sales Tax Begins May 1st 2014
The party’s over folks. The days of no-tax shopping online might soon be coming to an end for all major retailers. Some faster than others as explained below.
Amazon has always been that place to get items not only cheaper, but always with a sales tax bypass. But being that Amazon has a couple “fulfillment” centers and a 1.1. million-square-foot warehouse in the works, things are to the point where the company is locked in to a state law that requires stores with a physical presence in the state to collect sales taxes.
So as of May 1st (which is two weeks away), Amazon will begin charging sales tax to all its Florida customers. Its reported that the new move will bring in over $80 million in revenue to the state of Florida.
