Centsible's Sales Tax Free Shopping Series

Centsible's New Sales Tax Free Series

Centsible is starting a new series this Halloween weekend to get you ready for the holiday shopping season. Doing your shopping online can save you money in more ways than you think. Not only will you save time (which is money), you'll also save on gasoline, parking fees and postage and trips to the post office. Not only that but you're more likely to get exactly what you're looking for when you shop online. Combine this with coupon codes and free shipping offers, what more could you ask for? What about no sales tax?

No Sales Tax on Internet Sales?

In the Constitution there is a little clause that prevents taxation on goods crossing state lines. This has recently been subject to much debate, what with the internet making interstate sales much more easier and common. The popular belief though is with the huge differences from state to state in their various sales tax laws, it would put an unecessary burden on small businesses to calculate appropriate sales taxes for areas outside of their own state. Thus, businesses are only subject to collect sales tax on sales in states where they have a "significant presence". Items you can purchase tax-free online might surprise you!
