I wish what you playfully say you read were true. Then that $900 camera body I bought on Amazon in August wouldn't have cost me an additional $72 bucks! If I had bought it a few weeks earlier it would have been tax free because Amazon has just recently been forced by Texas to charge tax. Read today CA will soon have Amazon charge tax there too.
