Sales Tax forms from online purchases

New this year for me. I'm getting new tax notices in the mail from online
purchases (where my local PA sales tax was not collected). They list my totals from purchases on their site. One was from an ebay seller.

I do a lot of online shopping, so I'm wondering how many more I'm going to be getting. Also, what is reported to PA Revenue Dept.

Ouch! I donít like to hear that! I never keep track of whether or not my online purchases collect PA tax or not.

I'm fortunate in having an easy way to avoid keeping track of out of state purchases.

My state (Kentucky) lets me simply use a table to determine the use tax due based on my AGI. It works out to about 0.08% of AGI so a very modest sum.

I would guess at least some other states have similar systems.

Well, specifically, one of the forms I got was for items that are NON TAXABLE. So, while I did buy these items online, and I didn't pay taxes for them, I wasn't suppose to pay taxes on them. I'd hate for them to be submitting this to PA, and PA to be expecting me to now pay taxes on them.
