Many online places now charge sales tax and what your CPA would be asking me to do is determine which online purchases have and have not charged sales tax. I pay these bills with credit card and I don't keep sales receipts for either online or any other routine purchases. I do scan my receipts for items that I might need to know the value of in the event of a theft for example. I found it easy to determine use tax due on online purchases. I get an email receipt with purchase confirmation. It is easy to set up a folder to move those receipts until tax time. The email account I use also has excellent search capabilities.Also, Amazon purchases are the bulk of my online purchases. I can look up all my purchases under the account tab and add up the amount to be taxed.I prefer to go through the trouble rather than risk being audited and/or having to pay an estimate based on income. I checked actual vs estimate and it is definitely lower.- zol
