Amazon to its customers: 'you may owe money for taxes...for the past calendar year' before you ask how it can be legal to retroactively declare something as taxable, I would like to point out that : *you may owe me money for the past calendar year * as well, details will be forthcoming.
#unbelievable #wtf
Being a Little Gutless, Amazon, and if this continues - GIVE US A CHOICE of shipping from locations - and BE UPFRONT ABOUT IT!

Just got an email from amazon.com that says that something they chose to ship to me from Tennessee may be subject to a tax. Ah, so I may have to pay a tax on a $13.72 purchase? Thanks for the heads-up. Oh - and no, I won't be clicking that link :-)

I love it when companies cover their asses, and I hate it when they don't explain this when you place an order.

As you may know, Amazon.com LLC is not required to collect sales or use taxes in Tennessee. However, the state of Tennessee requires us to provide the following notice to you:

You may owe use tax on purchases you made from Amazon.com LLC during the previous calendar year. The amount of tax you may owe is based on the total sales price of the items you purchased during the calendar year unless an exemption exists under state law or you have already paid the tax. A sale is not exempt under state law because it is made through the Internet. The total sales price of purchases you had shipped to Tennessee in 2011 was $13.72. This is the amount that you may include on your Tennessee use tax return to calculate the appropriate use tax owed unless you have already paid the tax."_

In addition, the state of Tennessee requires us to provide you with the following link that you can use to get more information and pay any taxes due:
