It depends on the company really. Most online companies don't charge sales tax because technically they don't need to if you do not reside in the state which the company is legally registered.
However, some companies will charge sales tax if your shipping address is within the state they operate, while others just add a little extra to the cost of the item to cover sales tax.
Again, it depends on the company and how they choose to operate.
