I tried to place a large order with RockAuto, and when I got to checkout they said they couldn't sell to me because the tax laws in my area are too complex, and they don't have enough accountants on staff to deal with it. Ended up buying the bare minimum to get the job done from the local parts store at twice the price plus tax, which I guess is what they want.

My state is being invaded and taken over by people who want to pay MORE taxes, so it's not likely to get any better any time soon. I just don't understand how the average American giving up 47% of their income to taxes isn't enough. Seems like they won't be happy until we're all back on the plantation. Free range slavery just isn't good enough.

I agree that it sucks but it is a reality now that the supreme court ruled on the South Dakota v Wayfair case. It levels the playing field a little with the brick and motor stores but, while I don't like it, I generally still save quite a bit by getting it online.
I hit the local box stores if I can't wait for the parts to arrive, or if the price is close to what I can get it online for.

If the goal is to "level the playing field", why not eliminate sales tax for the brick and mortar stores?

That would be "counter productive" to those collecting the tax.

Except for those in states without any sales tax, who are now being forced to collect and remit sales tax for other states/cities/countys.

The Supreme Court got it wrong on this one.  Seems to be a trend these days.
