Received this email from Reverb. Looks like it applies to both dealers and independent sellers, so buyers will be taxed new/used no matter what. Bummer

"Reverb will soon collect sales tax from buyers in all Marketplace Facilitator states. When you sell to Marketplace Facilitator states, Reverb is responsible for collecting and remitting sales taxes on your behalf. No action is required on your part.

Not surprised. I don't live in the US but any time governments change tax policies/rules, they will go somewhere to 'pay the bills'. In Canada they recently passed an 'online digital tax' which taxes certain digital/non-physical goods.

Typical government greed. Buy your big ticket pieces now, before you have to factor another couple hundred $ into your budget.

For context so I don't trigger anyone, I'm referring to USED gear.

New gear tax: was always coming, no surprise there

Ebay hit me twice about 2 weeks ago, first time.
Next transaction...no tax.
eBay depends on where the seller is located I believe. I was going to buy a Kemper from a dealer in NY on eBay: tax. When I tried a different seller (not a dealer, if that matters?) in a different state: no tax

Too late, not only do we have one of the highest taxes (my city is 9% but Seattle is 10.1%) we're already being hit on Reverb

Really glad I went CL for my latest amp purchase 2 days ago. Not only did I get it below average Reverb price (not counting the blue alinco inside) but I saved shipping and tax, heck I saved $200 in shipping and tax plus got a deal on it.

Tough news for buyers but at least it'll curb my GAS for a long while. The gravy train was nice while it lasted.

But with two Suhr guitars and two really nice Les Paul's, I dont think I'll really want anything else for awhile and would like to think i can trade for most of anything else I'd want at least. Good time to cool it and just enjoy my gear.
