When you file your NYS Income Tax forms, there is (has been for 10 years) a line regarding your 'avoided' NYS Sales Tax obligation. You are required to make good on what you didn't pay, either thru a stated amount based on actual sales, or by claiming a "Safe Haven" amount based on your income and an estimate. Skipping this line is considered tax evasion, punishable by public floggings, boiling in oil, etc.
NYS is forcing merchants to comply (Amazon is an example - sued by the NYS Attorney General).
Net: It won't be long before this is unavoidable nation-wide.
