eBay Sales Tax - Changes now in effect!

Recommended Posts

Well, we had been warned a few months ago, but the day finally arrived. Effective today, buyers in Minnesota and Washington will see sales tax charged to purchases made on eBay. Other states will follow soon (see here).

 

What impact do you think this will have on the hobby moving forward (if any)?

The sales tax will hurt the hobby in a couple ways. It will hurt the margins of people selling cards and also will mean buyers can buy less. Even a 5% sales tax adds up over the course of buying and selling. I don't think it will cripple the hobby, as everything else is affected, too, but it will certainly reduce spending a bit.
