Sales Tax Now Added to Online Shopping Orders in Georgia


The days of online tax-free shopping in Georgia are over.

The state became the 10th in the country to change its tax code this week.

Many online retailers like Amazon will now collect the state's 8-percent sales tax. If the site you shop doesn't collect the tax, you'll still have to pay what's called a 'use tax' to the Georgia Department of Revenue.

State officials say the change will bring in about $18 million a year.
