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.

But that doesn't change the fact that the price listed on the web site does not include tax, which is what the question was.

And for our European friends:  there is no such thing as VAT in the U.S. Most states have sales taxes, but those are applied based on the purchase price, not included in the purchase price.
