I reckon they, like others, are getting ahead of the game. E.g., Last December I rented equipment from Roger's Lens Rentals outfit. Great group of folks, btw, with exceptionally good customer service IMHO that other dealers could well emulate. Anyway, no tax. Month or so ago, I rented more gear and, lo and behold, there was PA tax added to the bill. I called to ask what was up, and the CS rep said something to the effect that since they had a "presence" in each of the States by virtue of their rental gear being there, they were obligated to charge sales tax. I don't know if that change was prompted by some change in TN legislation that required it. CS rep sounded as unhappy about it as I was. It didn't deter me from renting from them again, however.
Yeah, all the Progressives in Congress - both sides of the aisle - are looking to lift as much of our money as they can - it's what they do for their living: spend other folks' money and they do that in pursuit of such stupid enterprises as Trashicanistan, but, I digress...
Now for my next cup of coffee......
