I don't know what state you live in, but just about all states require you to pay taxes on online purchases, if taxes were not collected by the vendor. (Normally, taxes are only collected by the vendor if they have a retail presence in your state) So, the only reason Amazon is cheaper is that you are probably dodging taxes. Either way, this little loophole is almost certainly in it's twilight.
In other news: 9%, ouch!!
