@miquinn: Yeah, but geez, that was nine months ago. There are newer users who might not have searched and seen the question. ;)

EDIT: The state has changed as well.

Effective September 1, 2012, Woot, Inc. was required to begin collecting sales tax on orders shipped to destinations in Pennsylvania.

@thunderthighs: thanks for answering my late night questions that apparently i should have looked for a little better. I went back to my question but now that i am out of Texas again I did not think it applied. THanks for the free info; I still think that that is the best deal this community has to offer is the free knowledge.

@philosopherott: No problem. A lot of people are surprised to find out that sales tax applies to the ship to address, not the billing address.
