I have been reporting online purchases for several years. I don't want to cross the CA FTB when they have the law clearly on their side.

Now that Amazon is collecting sales tax, the amount Amazon has already collected applies. For our taxes this year, Amazon had already collected about half.

We make a couple of international purchases a year. This year international purchases were around $400. International purchases are reported to customs and are likely easily traced.
