I guess the title sums it up. FWIW. Or, at least they now include the estimated sales tax at check out.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Online sales tax has always been a state-by-state thing. Could be your state just happened to change its rules recently. For me (AZ) its been charged for ages.

Because we are in California where the housing prices are high and gas taxes keep increase. Median house price California 2019 is $510k where Nationwide median housing falls on $270k. I am just venting it out, especially about the gas prices. It's insane!

1st time for Mouser sales tax for me (in Tenn that is - in Texas I paid sales tax).
Been paying tax for Amazon for quite some time.

I believe if the company has a 'physical presence' in the particular state, sales tax must be charged.  Maybe Mouser has a new warehouse in Tennessee now?
They confiscated everything, even the stuff we didn't steal!

Just filled up at Arco, usually the only reasonable one, and it finally went above $4 😑

It is probably because of the recent Supreme Court decision in wayfair v South Dakota.  A lot of orders that were tax free in the past will be changing
I thought this would save me money.

This is true! California is really expensive plus on top of that we have property maintenance costs in the USA https://tranio.com/usa/maintenance/ and taxes and so on. If you don't have a good job and salary it can be really hard to manage.
