Got an item on your Amazon wish list? Today's the last day shoppers in the state of Florida will be able to snag purchases Amazon.com without being charged sales tax by the online retailer.
Amazon will start collecting sales tax on Floridians' purchases Thursday, according to an announcement the company made earlier this month. That means everything from books to flat screen televisions will be subject to tax when shoppers buy from the site.
Florida joins nearly two dozen other states that are already subject to sales' taxes on Amazon.com, including California, New York, Texas and Georgia.
The change comes as Amazon is building distribution centers in Polk County and near Tampa. The Florida Department of Revenue requires online companies to collect sales taxes if they have a physical presence in the state.
Never miss a local story.
Under state law, Floridians are supposed to pay the taxes on online purchases themselves, but many people don't.
