Collection of Sales Tax

Why is Air-Tite collecting sales tax on my order?

In June 2018 the Supreme Court ruled in a case known as South Dakota v. Wayfair (yes, that’s Wayfair the on-line furniture retailer) that a business no longer has to have a “physical presence” (something like an office, warehouse, store, etc.) in order for a state to require the collection of sales tax. This case overturned a 25 year old court ruling in a case named Quill Corp v. North Dakota. So, now any State that has passed legislation which says that a business with an “economic presence” can require the collection of sales tax.
