What is the story with taxes when buying something on eBay?
I live in Quebec and figured it might be easier to buy a camera from an action store located in Canada. But, the (Canada-based) sellers indicate that they will charge the applicable taxes if you live in Canada – but they won’t charge anything to US-based buyers!
If Canadian stores are forced to apply the provinical and federal sales taxes in Canada, are American stores forced to apply applicable state and federal taxes in the US?
And most importantly (for me), is a US store required to charge me provincial and federal sales taxes?
