A packaging supplier located in CA with no outlets in NY, where I am located, has suddenly, after more than ten years, decided it is going to collect NY state sales tax. Frankly, I feel doubtful that they are going to turn over that money to the NY Dept. of Revenue. I think they are just going to pocket it. Has anyone else run across this sort of thing? They are asking for a tax number to be faxed to them. I feel like I don't need to provide them with anything of the sort, since I am not located in their state and they should not, at this point, be collecting NY state sales tax. They have no presence in NY state, not even affiliates.
