Amazon and eBay are now collecting sales tax
for the State of Illinois as of the first of this year on all purchases transacted on their sites.

eBay is even collecting the sales tax on items shipping from overseas, items which have never physically been in the USA until they are shipped to me. This strikes me as a bit of an overreach and seems a little bit unfair.

I guess the decades long freedom from sales taxes on internet purchases is finally coming to an end. So my goodies will be costing me an extra 8% from now on.
