Amazon.com to Charge Sales Tax on New Jersey Orders Starting in 2013

We have some bad news for people who like to shop on Amazon.com in New Jersey. The giant retailer is out to build two huge distribution centers within New Jersey that Governor Chris Christie says will bring 1500 new full-time jobs to the area. The downside is, with the physical presence in New Jersey the company will have to start charging sales tax. The state sales tax for New Jersey is 7%.

Before you get too angry about the new distribution centers coming to New Jersey, apparently Amazon.com is going to have to charge sales tax whether its distribution centers are built within the state or not. Online retailers not having to charge sales tax in states where they don't have a physical presence has been a sore point for both cash-strapped states and retail stores.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
