I'm trying to get around the issue of paying an extra 200-300 bucks in tax on a new mac pro. My best option is that my father lives on the border of NH (not in NH, in MA) so he could easily go to the Apple store for me. However I am in NY. I've called the store before and asked if I could make a purchase over the phone but they said no and must do it online, but that would cost me tax as it goes by where it is shipped. I also asked if I could have it "shipped" to the store so I could pick it up and avoid tax. No go. My 3rd idea is just have my dad go in and buy it but use my credit card number, or have them call me while he is there to verify everything and still essentially pay over the phone. Do you think this idea will work or have any other suggestions in avoiding this massive tax? I can easily have it shipped to MA, RI or NY as I technically live in all 3 locations but that doesn't help.
