Hmmm, maybe they straightened it out. Or perhaps RockAuto won't sell to an address within a municipal taxing entity, ie if you're only in county/state tax district, you're ok.
I'll give a try some other time, but I know I'm not the only one because when it happened I checked it out via Google. This would have been mid-summer or so.
A synopsis of the change here in Colorado:
"Beginning December 1, 2018, the Colorado Department of Revenue will require all businesses who sell goods to customers in their state to assess sales tax based on the customer’s address, not the location of the business.
Colorado has a general sales tax rate of 2.9 percent. But cities in Colorado are allowed to set their own sales tax rates at anywhere from 0 to 7 percent. In fact, there are 344 taxing jurisdictions in all. So with this new rule, any online retailer–whether it’s a home-based business in Boulder selling handmade crafts through their website or a national retail giant like Amazon–will have to assess and collect sales tax from Colorado customers based on the specific rates for the local jurisdictions in which they live."
Quoted from here:
"As businesses have moved toward an online sales model, sales tax collection for the State of Colorado has changed with the passage of HB19-1240 to account for that shift. Beginning June 1, 2019, sales tax will be calculated based on the buyer’s address when the taxable product or service is delivered to the consumer. This is called destination sourcing. "
