Planning to buy something on Amazon soon and live in Florida? Do it before May 1st and save 6%. That’s right – effective May 1, Amazon will begin charging those in Florida an additional 6% for sales tax. Amazon announced they will be opening two distribution centers in Florida next month and now since they will have a physical presence in Florida they have to charge sales tax. That stinks for those of us who use Amazon, and believe me, my family uses Amazon. We always look to Amazon for the lowest price, not to mention the convenience. Unfortunately now we will have to spend a little more.
