Amazon now charging sales tax in Indiana

CINCINNATI -- If you're looking to avoid paying sales tax while shopping online, your options are now much slimmer in Indiana.

Popular online retailer is now charging sales tax in the state as part of a law that could boost Indiana's revenue.

Amazon already collected tax in 16 states, including Kentucky. But with 2014, Indiana, Nevada and Tennessee have been added to the growing list. South Carolina will join them in 2016.

Ohio has not been added to the list of states where sales tax is required on purchases.

The new law hasn't happened without major pushback from Amazon and other online retailers, Yahoo News reports.

Amazon's warehouse expansions have given it a physical presence in more and more regions -- including Hebron, Ky. -- speeding up deliveries but also opening it up to taxes.

Items sold on and shipped to destinations in the following states are subject to the tax:

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Georgia
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Massachusetts
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • North Dakota
  • Pennsylvania
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin
