Puerto Rico, just weeks ago, started levying a sales tax of a could-be, depending on the purchase, whooping 8%.Though, I do most my shopping online, I did wonder if I'd have to start paying that tax. Drugstore.com says no:
Drugstore.com is required to charge sales tax on nonprescription orders shipped to addresses in the state of Washington, the location of our corporate headquarters. The tax rate applied to your order will match the current rate at the location of our corporate headquarters. Therefore, the sales tax rate applied to your order may be different from your local rate.
Washington residents are not required to pay sales tax on orders for prescriptions or contact lenses. All other orders shipped to addresses in the remaining 49 states, including US Territory and APO/FPO addresses, will not be subject to sales tax.
