    I've found that while the refurb section on Apple.com has some great deals, the sales tax usually kills them. I live in Texas, and we have 8.25% tax.

    Which online retailers that you know of don't charge sales tax? I know Amazon doesn't, but they don't sell refurbs, and I've seen better deals at places like MacConnection, CDW, etc.

    Isn't the general rule that an online store only has to charge for sales tax if they have a physical store in that state?

    Yep, if there is a physical store in the state the online store should charge sales tax.

    just search for whatever you are buying through a bottom price comparison shopper and you can find th ebest price there. Macrumors has one.
