Newegg is one of the best places to buy electronics online, and we've posted countless deals from the store over the past few years. Internet-based stores have largely been exempt in the past from paying U.S. state taxes, but those legal loopholes are slowly being closed. B&H Photo recently started charging sales tax in almost all states, and now Newegg is following suit.

According to a support document, Newegg will begin charging sales tax in eight more states starting on July 1st. The new states are Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and Virginia bringing the total to 43.
