Does this sound correct?

(Of course, this isn't logical in the offline world. If someone from Fiji walks into a B&M business in California, he's still going to be charged state sales tax.)
Actually, yes you can. If the store ships the item for you. I recented purchased a $300 item in Las Vegas while on vacation. The store shipped the item to my home in Pennsylvania and therefore did not charge me sales tax, even though I was standing right there in the store.
A simple call to your states Sales Tax office would be the best place to get advise on this though...
Although I should also point out that the reciever may need to pay USE TAX on the item when they recieve it. As I needed to do, so I didn't actually avoid the tax, I just paid PA's lower rate.
