Thank you ! The state of Florida appreciates every penny you will collect (but
not necessarily most of the residents).

As a Kansas reseller with a tax id it would be nice to hear an update on getting
that portion of the updates done.

Someone from the BL team mentioned a few days ago that they're prioritizing
the EU VAT update over this.

Well, strangely, governments also prioritize¹ collecting taxes to enabling exemptions


(¹ They go after you more slowly or even not at all for the latter.)

This might be slightly off-topic, but I'm wondering if Bricklink is aware
of the fact that today and tomorrow (August 14th & 15th, 2021) is officially
a sales tax holiday in Massachusetts.


https://www.mass.gov/info-details/sales-tax-holiday-frequently-asked-questions

From mass.gov:
"What about internet sales? Do those sales qualify for the sales tax holiday
exemption?
Yes. If you order and pay for an eligible item over the internet on the sales
tax holiday, Eastern Daylight Time, that item will qualify for the sales tax
holiday exemption. No sales tax is due on that purchase, even if delivery of
the item occurs after the sales tax holiday weekend."

"Legislation was signed into law in 2018 that established an annual sales tax
holiday for one weekend each year." The exact dates might change from year to
year, but I think it is always in August.


I haven't received any orders from buyers in my home state as of yet this
weekend, so haven't been able to test whether Bricklink has disabled MA sales
tax for the weekend. Shoppers here are well aware of the sales tax holiday, so
I imagine a buyer would be pretty annoyed to see a sales tax charge on Bricklink,
and it might even cost sellers some sales. Not just MA sellers, but any seller
potentially shipping to a buyer in MA.
