Since Tower is located in Illinois, someone from California will not be taxed on their order. Only if the retailer has a store or facility in your state will you pay your states sales tax. Tower has a warehouse in Nevada, so I suspect someone living there would be charged the Nevada sales tax, as would the resident of Illinois.
Still too many other variables when comparing European prices and US prices. I just went back into Robbe's site to compare some other Futaba radios. From Tower a 12FG will be $999, less any of Towers deals that could be between 5 and 10% off that price with free shipping in the lower 48 states. Robbe's price is over 1100 Euros for the same radio, so as I see it, when Tower lists the msrp, then I'll know what one will cost me. My best guesstimate will be around $679 from Tower.
