PSA: B&H Photo will start collecting sales tax for items shipped to NJ

I live in NJ and have ordered from B&H Photo (no sales tax in NJ at the moment). However I received an email from them that states the following:

Dear customer,

B&H is expanding its distribution network to better serve our customers and will soon operate a fulfillment center in the state of New Jersey.

Our new facility will allow us to process and ship your orders faster; it also means that we will begin collecting sales tax on orders shipped to New Jersey addresses, starting on February 1st.

We wanted you to be among the first to know, since our records indicate that you've used a NJ shipping address in the past.

If you have any questions about taxes, or if you are a tax exempt entity and would like to set up your tax exemption with us, please contact our tax department:

B&H Photo Tax Department
taxdept@bhphoto.com
(212) 444 5031 or
(800) 259 8941

We are grateful for your patronage and appreciate this opportunity to continue offering you the best possible service at every level.

Sincerely,
Customer Service Team

This blows. I love to use B&H since their shipping is so fast for NJ and no tax. Why do they need to expand distribution when the shipping is already great. D:

Too bad. We've lost another online reseller to taxes. Oh well there's useless frys with their neverworking codes, rakuten for now, and i think tigerdirect is still around? But they never have any deals on what i need. No reason to buy from b&h anymore. RIP Frown

Besides the 3 who posted, I'm getting thumbs down. I'm not the one who is charging tax. ☺️

Please plp don't thumb down this post, it's informative and useful for everyone that used to take advantage of no tax in B&H for NJ.

Isn't thumbs down used when the deal information is inaccurate / not useful?
This post is accurate and useful too! Nono2
