If you live in the Lone Star State like myself and Joystiq’s managing editor JC Fletcher, you have no doubt spent many years enjoying one of our state’s most prosperous traits: All Amazon purchases made in Texas are sales-tax free. Well, at least until the first of July.
Amazon and state comptroller Susan Combs have reached an agreement wherein Amazon will create 2,500 jobs, contribute $ 200 million in capital investment and begin collecting sales tax on all purchases made by Texans effective July 1, according to the Austin-American Statesman. So, if you live in Texas and have been putting off a rather large purchase, maybe think about getting a move on it. Otherwise, check out our favorite webcomics from last week and vote for your favorite after the break.
