I'm going to attend the above meeting, Nassau County NY, maybe they will clear up the issue and hopefully some others too.
PS: Doug NY is the same way - that might be a federal country wide amendment.

Hi Barb I guess what I was trying to say and what I said don't match with each other. What I mean't was that probably every state in the union is probably collecting sales tax for online purchases in one shape or another("use tax" as Doug called it).
But you can bet your last crinkled dollar that the feds are looking for a way to tax everything else, too
You don't want to start to open that can of worms here do you It's downright disgusting that our government has lost their way .... I remember reading this when I was a kid
government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
We have strayed far !!

With all its shortcomings, I've never seen or heard of a better place that provides the opportunities and freedoms America does.
Just for grins I went to the Texas website for sales tax. I would imagine that every state has such a website and contact information for anything you have questions about. I traveled to Arts and Crafts shows for many years and had a variety of experiences with different states and collecting sales tax. Even though it is a bit more paperwork having a sales tax permit does have benefits beyond keeping you out of trouble with the state.
My tax number got me in the door with a lot of the places that sold wholesale. On items that were not for resale or to be incorporated into a product on which sales tax was to be charged I generally paid tax, the main thing for me was that the tax number was important as a part of my credentials as a business.
I no longer have a sales tax permit, but if I was going to be doing a lot of business I would seek clarification from the state as to what I should charge tax on- case in point- the shop where I got all my router bits and carbide saw blades sharpened got hung on a fine point- if I recall correctly it they were supposed to have been charging tax on anything they actually modified beyond just sharpening, cost them several thousand in tax and penalties. So if I get to the point where I doing slides shows and videos for my own amazement and actually making some money I will consult the state tax office.
I like the statement attributed to Winston Churchill, "democracy is the worst form of government in the world, except for all the others." I think this applies very well to the United States
In CT the Department of Revenue Services holds free seminars on various topics, such as when sales tax has to be collected for products or services.

Overclocking is probably the cause.
