RE: Yes, but the OP still won't save...

In the US we pay state sales tax for any in-state purchase. For out-of-state purchases frequently the tax is not collected and it is up to the buyer to declare these taxes ;) The likelihood of being caught not paying though is nil.

All of the big internet dealers like Amazon (are there any others???) have presence in most states anyway so they have to collect the tax. Smaller retailers do not so you get away without it. This is something the states want to stop of course since they lose tax revenue.

Personal transactions are also supposed to be taxed in-state, but good luck finding someone that actually does that. On eBay you are unlikely to be taxed, even in-state. I bought a fairly expensive bike frame a few years ago online and the shop had both a NY location and one in Ontario. To save on the tax they shipped from Canada. But if they had a NY location and one in Pennsylvania, I'd have to pay. And like with everything else tax related, there are loopholes.

And back to the original question, become a student and get 50% off Tidal. I'm not a student but I have a daughter that is. Guess whose name the account is under?
