Amazon is opening two major distribution centers down in my neck of the woods. Talk of the town is that those facilities will be accompanied by sales tax for the entire Commonwealth.
Looks like it will start Sept. 1, 2013, in Virginia:

Online retail giant Amazon.com would start collecting and remitting sales taxes in Virginia on Sept. 1, 2013, under an agreement announced by Gov. Bob McDonnell's office and advanced by a House of Delegates committee Wednesday.

Looks like sales are going to surge at buy.com and other e-retailers that don't charge tax.

They've been fighting it here in Indiana, so I'm going to guess they'll soon be doing the same here.

Certain sellers on eBay collect sales tax. It is the better option by far though since eBay has no obligation to enforce it.

I'm pretty sure I read a news story a couple weeks ago that boiled down to a California court finding that Amazon having to collect sales tax in the first place wasn't allowed, so a reprieve is irrelevant. I'll try to find it again.
