Was in the mall the other day and got an explaination. It used to be you could order online and not pay tax. Over $50 on the main site and over $100 meant free shipping too. Now you get charged tax if Oakley has a store in your state. Was told they changed the policy where you can now return items bought online back to a local store. That is why they changed it and you have to pay tax online. There goes one benefit of buying online I guess. Thought I would post in case anyone was interested.
