    Check your state tax laws. Many states now tax online transactions.

    I don't think so, I bought a laptop online two weeks ago and no tax.

    It really does all depend upon your state's laws. EA honors all 50 states tax code and if your state demands sales tax be collected on online sales then EA does.

    Not every online store/company are honoring sales tax collection though, in state presence or not. Amazon comes to mind. Google "Amazon pulling out of Texas."

    I used to live in Washington state and my monthly subscription and uogamecodestore purchases were taxed. Since I moved to Montana I'm no longer charged sales tax by EA.
