Amazon untill recently was only taking taxes from the clients living in the same state. Aka any person buying online could avoid paying any sale taxes provided they were not living in the same state as the online dealer. But that is about to change, or has already changed.

When a foreigner buys from B&H or Amazon, he pays no sale taxes. Not sure whether that has changed with the new way online dealers are treated.

Amazon has to charge a sales tax anyplace where Amazon has a physical presence in the state. New Jersey now gets charges a sales tax because Amazon now has a warehouse in the state. B&H only charges sales tax to New York residences.
