Why has PlayStation® Store started charging sales tax?
In certain areas, state and local laws require PlayStation® Store to collect applicable sales taxes. In order to comply with these laws, PlayStation® Store began collecting sales tax on its products/services in certain states in April 2016.
For some folks the tax man is old hat.

Although you're supposed to report all internet purchases to the IRS for tax purposes.

I'll just do what I did with my Nintendo 3DS and change my location to a place without sales tax. I only use PSN cards on their store anyway. Although I don't know how it would work with Vue, Now, and Music
