Default FB Auction and Sales Tax

So I joined an auction on facebook and know I should be charging sales tax if the sale is within the state I live in (CA) But am afraid the winner might be offended. Does anyone here participate in these auctions and if so, is charging sales tax expected?

I would just pay the sales tax w/ out mentioning to the buyer. Yes, you are out a little money, but buyers don't like surprises. (atleast I don't ) Maybe next time you could say that sales tax will be added if the buyer is from _____. That way they know what to expect. Hope your auction was a great success!!

When you go to any retail store you pay tax i don't think it should be any different charging them tax online and its only .07 on every dollar or whatever it is in CA so its not like an astronomical amount they will have to pay. i wouldn't worry about it
