I think Connecticut is a lot more to blame here than newegg. In general, fuck states for trying to collect sales tax when there is no physical presence of the seller in that state. It's unreasonable for them to try to comply with the tax laws of all 50 states.

Generally agree with that assessment, if it's a small business. NewEgg does millions in revenue so just as a matter of scale it should be more economical. There are services that handle how to properly charge tax for each state/city/county

IIRC there's a different tax term for shit ordered from out of state and it's the buyers responsibility to report it, not Newegg's. Gimme a minute and I'll try to look it up.

Edit: It's a use tax.
