Amazon Collects Sales Tax in Massachusetts

MASSACHUSETTS – Beginning November 2013, Amazon.com will start to collect sales tax in Massachusetts.

This comes after purchasing the warehouse-robotics company Kiva Systems, in North Reading, and open a technology office in Cambridge.

Paul Misener, Amazon’s VP of global public policy said that the company looks forward “to creating hundreds of high tech jobs in Massachusetts and continuing to work with Governor Patrick, state leaders, retailers and Congress to pass” federal e-fairness legislation.

As of January 2014, Amazon will also collect sales tax in Indiana, Nevada and Tennessee.
