That is because the simple fact is... tax must be paid in states that require it. Just because the reseller doesn't directly "charge" you the tax as a separate line charge, the tax still must be paid. What some resellers do to offset this is either add the average or the highest state tax amount to the cost of each item. On your receipt there is not a "line" for tax, so it would appear that you didn't pay tax when in fact you have. The only difference is that since there is not a line for it, they can say that they never charged tax. That way, a buyer is none the wiser and the retailer still has the correct tax amount added to the sale so they can deduct that amount and report it to the proper state tax office.
