amazonHave you purchased anything from Amazon the past few days?  Did you notice that they are now collecting sales tax for Wisconsin?

The online retailer is opening a distribution facility in Kenosha which gives Amazon a physical presence in the state.  Under the law, the state required Amazon to start collecting the taxes.

The new 5-percent tax on Amazon is expected to add about $30 million a year to Wisconsin’s state revenue.

  2. I did notice that last night. I also noticed they increased the amount you need to spend to get free shipping to $35.

  4. Amazon made the shipping threshold change in Mid-October. We’ve been mentioning the $35 limit on all our posts since then.
