Odd, I was charged sales tax on an order shipping to NY. I thought that didn't apply when shipping to a state that where the seller doesn't have a business presence. Same thing on the two ACF hoppers I ordered in January.

Unfortunately, most sates are charging sales tax on mail orders and auction sales also. At least a couple of years now.

It was seldom a question of whether sales tax was owed on mail order sales.  Rather it was about whether the seller could be obligated to collect and pay over the sales tax.  In my state starting in 2019 out of state sellers became obligated to collect and pay over sales tax if either they did $100k in annual gross sales in the state or they did 200 or more transactions within the state.

Not too long after I made the above reply, I saw a youtube ad for a firm that assists businesses in figuring out use taxes for out-of-state customers, so it's likely Menards is collecting sales tax for the buyer's locality: Investopedia: Use taxes
