Amazon has already started charging sales tax for every state.
Amazon doesn't charge sales tax in Maryland, yet. However, in 2014 they are opening a distribution center in Maryland, and sales tax will be charged thereafter.

Maryland is known for taxing things like the rain, and toilet flushing.

This thread has gotten a bit side tracked, but it makes me feel better that we aren't alone here in Taxachusetts. At least it isn't "taxation without representation"... We do have representation don't we, right?

That's DC's license plate, you know. Because they *don't* have representation.

I thought only Colorado did that… (well, more precisely they make harvesting rain water illegal and will fine you heavily for it) Collecting Rainwater Still Illegal in Much of Colorado | Lot Lines

haha this thread has gotten a bit off track. As for Amazon collecting tax, it only occurs if they have any business or facility in that state. As for paying taxes and/or saving money on out of state purchases, I believe that the IRS has required purchases that were done out of state to be declared and taxes paid. There is an IRS form as well, but as it was pretty much unenforceable. Well that's what I remember from my research into internet tax awhile ago.

Amazon still doesn't have stock

It appears that Pentax is having trouble meeting demand. Amazon and one of their partners have sold off all the discounted K3's and they have still not been restocked. Good news for Pentax (the demand that is), bad news for consumers.

Generally, it's state bureaus of taxation rather than the IRS, since there is no national VAT in the U.S. like there is in the EU. Almost every state has what is called a "Use Tax" pegged to its sales tax for items bought out of state that you are obliged to declare on your state income tax return, and you are technically breaking the law if you fail to do so.

It's generally not strictly enforced; however if there other tax proceedings agianst you, the state can and will fine you for failure to declare use tax liability.

State water law west of the Mississippi can get extremely strange. I remember when I was living in Cedar City, Utah a few years ago, that a couple of times a week, I'd see water simply flowing down the open air gutters in the street. This struck me as extremely odd, since it's a very arid desert area with a constant water shortage. Apparently there was still an Old West-era law on the books obliging the town to provide a flow of water on a periodic basis for the use of the town's citizens, their households, their horses, etc.

Of course in the intervening 150 years, nearly everyone has had indoor plumbing installed, so no one actually uses this water. It simply flows into the sewer.

I'm excited about this camera... for one, to own when it gets below 700ish in a year or three ..

and for two, because it is high-end enough, I think, to really pull some outside interest towards Pentax as a whole. That means, perhaps, more interest from 3rd party lens and accessory developers to release products for Pentax... so we all win (potentially).

And now it's $1187 on Amazon. 1058 if you don't mind a "cosmetic imperfection" from warehouse deals
