I don't get charged tax for some reason when buying from amazon, even when it's fulfilled by them. Both my billing and shipping address are registered here. It's weird but I'm not complaining.
I still prefer buying from newegg even if I have to pay sales tax with them, just because I always get stuff from them overnight. Last time I ordered at 9pm and it was on my doorstep at 10am the next morning!
I don't get how it works either but if the seller is not Amazon and they have no physical presence in California, no tax is charged. I guess that includes "FBA" (fulfilled by Amazon) items as well. Amazon taxed my eneloop batteries a couple of weeks ago. I was under the impression that (free) shipping would be a lot quicker now that they have distribution center in Riverside. I was wrong. The batteries were shipped out of Reno, NV. Not sure why. It tooks a whole week to arrive.
