Looks like the Deptartment of Revenue in Connecticut is sending out letters to customers purchasing from out of state online retailers (Newegg) who did not charge the appropriate taxes.. This includes interest on those back taxes as well lol.

Apparently a few thousand tax bills have already been mailed out.. I know I saved a ton buying from Newegg lol

I like the way my state does it. You can list all your untaxed purchases or just pay a token tax depending on your income. I only get hit with $23 which is a good deal for me. It's a shame Newegg started charging tax for me, though.

When did they start? A month or so ago?

Newegg started at the end of last year. I wasn't happy when they sent that email out.

Technically it's not a "new" tax... almost every state has a "use tax" or something similar - your taxes straight up ask you if you've purchased anything out of state that you didn't pay tax for, and if so, you're supposed to report that, and it affects your tax return. Lots of people tend to ignore those though, so yeah, in those cases, they could end up owing quite a lot in "back taxes" if an audit finds evidence of unreported/untaxed purchases.

yep but who actually does that, good news is that I believe if it was indeed reported it might actually benefit me in the long run.

its weird, after a certain income its bad but under a certain income its not.

I live in CT but I just go to Microcenter. It's only like 20 minutes from my house. I never order online.

Meh. If the state I lived in tried that with me I'd be tempted to do the stupid thing and pay the taxes to the state NewEgg is based in instead of the state I live in on the grounds that that is where the sale took place.
