You mention that your state doesn't have a state tax - not sure exactly what you meant, but WA does indeed have a 6.5% sales tax and is usually listed as a state major retailers must collect sales tax from (For example Musician's Friend). As a matter of fact, it's the ONLY state that Reverb forces Tax collection from if you are a seller. From the the Tax Policy page when you set up a shop: "Tax rates for the following US regions are automatically calculated at checkout: WA".

That, my friend, is a straight up bummer!
