Default Sales tax on online purchases

Have any of you noticed the impact paying sales tax is on online purchases? Even Reverb... What a hit. Is this new? I just purchased a new guitar via Reverb - from another state... and my state doesn't have a state tax. Anyway, it was significant $$ of course.

I just can't recall having to pay this before with online purchases.. or maybe it's because I bought a "new" guitar?

edit: Update


Oops - my bad. I meant we don't have a state income tax. Yeah - we definitely have a sale tax... It's anywhere from 8.5 - 8.9% or so.
