Tell me why I should love New York.
Because these words, quoted below, strike me straight through my heart.
Here is the message from Amazon that delivered the fatal blow:
Due to a new law recently passed by the State of New York we are required to collect NY sales taxes on taxable items sold by Amazon.com on or after June 1st, 2008. If your order is placed prior to June 1st, your Order Total may not include an estimate of NY sales taxes, but those taxes may still be charged if your order is readied for shipment on or after that date.
Damn New York State and their horrible taxes.
