Oops, Did You Feel that Bump?

Things are leveling out for independent bookstores. This from today’s Shelf Awareness:

Effective tomorrow, Amazon will begin collecting sales tax on orders shipped to Pennsylvania, a reversal of policy that was triggered by a state directive last year requiring the 6% levy. In February, the state Department of Revenue granted a seven-month extension to Amazon and other online retailers that has now expired. Amazon currently collects sales taxes on orders shipped to Kansas, Kentucky, North Dakota, New York, Texas and Washington, with California set to join the list September 15.

California here it comes, Sept. 15th. Buying online won’t be quite the bargain it was before!                              -s.s.
