    Depends where you order from ... if it's from Apple, and there is an Apple store in your state, then yes.

    ^ is correct. Most online retailers will be force to charge you your state's sales tax because I am pretty sure they are still responsible for it.

    If they have some sort of brick-and-mortar representation in your state, they are legally obligated to charge tax.

    Technically only if they have a brick and mortar store in your state...

    Yes, stores made with wood or sheetrock are exempt.

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, I live in California so the tax does apply I guess.

    Damn that adds $217 to my purchase.
