    Hi, just a quick question: Is there tax when you purchase a MBP from MacConnection or MacMall?
    Both of them show the "price before tax and shipping" and I thought I heard from people awhile back that there wasnt tax at these online stores just like amazon.
    Yes I could check myself, but it looks like I have to enter all my information before I can see the Final price before entering my credit card info.


    Thanks for the help.

    Depends on where you live -- some states charge tax for online purchases regardless if the online store has a physical presence in the state.

    A simple Google search could have answered your questions :)

    From the MacMall website:
    Tax Rate
    In accordance with state and local law, your MacMall order will be taxed using the applicable sales tax or seller's use tax rate for your shipping address. If the tax rate changes before your purchase is shipped, the rate in effect at the time your order ships will apply.

    MacConnection:
    Sales taxes
    For a full list of states for which we charge sales tax, please see the purchase price section of our Terms and Conditions of Sale.

    Thanks for your help.
    I don't really want to register for a site I might not even pruchase from. I was looking for answers from people who used the sites before.
    Ah macrumors, the place where few actually answer questions without scrutinizing people. ;)

    I have to ask two questions:

    1. How do you manage to switch on the computer?

    2. Do you dress yourself in the morning?

    However, even if MacMall doesn't collect your local state tax, you still have to report your purchase to the state and pay the tax yourself...

    I'm sure everyone does that, right? :D:D:D

    Then there will be no sales tax if you buy from Amazon, Macmall, or MacConnection.

    I bought my MBP from Apple and paid full sales tax... but no, I probably wouldn't report my online purchases.

    By the way, I wonder which tax applies if one makes a purchase in a different state. I know that if you buy a car out of state, you have to pay up the difference when you register it.

    Thanks this is what I wanted to hear. I thought for some reason it depended on the store itself not the state, this is good news :)

    It does depend on the store itself. If they have a physical location in your state then they're required to collect sales tax. But wait, someone told you that at the very beginning.

    Oh, that's right. You're from Texas. We'll type slow for ya. :D

    I posted the info for you directly from their websites. It's info you could have looked up yourself. It does depend on the store, not the state. If the store has any sort of presence in your state, they're required to collect sales tax.

    Or you could just go to the websites, enter in your info and find out for yourself.
