My tax depends on whether it ships from Indiana or Kentucky.

Interesting. So it shows you this at the time of purchase? "These items are shipped from here, no tax. These other items are shipped from there, and here's what the tax will be."?

You guys should stop being tax cheats. Even if Amazon didn't charge taxes, you are still responsible for reporting/paying them.

Also, as I've learned from California's experience, buying from affiliates on Amazon may or may not (depending on something—I know not what) trigger a sales tax charge.

It depends on your address and the address of the shipper. So if I ship something to someone in AZ (not my state), they are responsible for paying the sales tax directly to AZ at tax time. If I ship to someone in IN (my state), I collect sales tax and then remit it to the State of Indiana.

As for stuff that I order directly from Amazon (not an affiliate), if it has tax added on at checkout, I know I'll be getting it the next day via Prime since the warehouse is on the northside of Indy. If there is no tax at checkout, I know it is shipping from another warehouse (typically Hebron, KY, sometimes Las Vegas).

As for the tax cheat thing, if they want me to pay sales tax, then have the seller collect it. That is how sales tax works. Not my problem.
