Help me understand how Apple charges tax on things. I currently live in a state with low sales tax, but no tax free weekend. "my other home" is in a state that has higher normal sales tax but has a tax free weekend in early August. SO: If I order an 8gb MBA online during tax free weekend will the online store charge me tax? Also I've been told that if no brick and mortar Apple store exists in my current state, that sales tax does not apply to online purchases. I'm not sure if this is true but if it is does that mean that Apple will deduct less from my credit card than the estimated product+tax cost on the checkout page? I'm probably making this more confusing than it needs to be, but I'd rather not pay the extra $85 if I don't have to.
