comment Does one have a halachic obligation to pay use tax
@DoubleAA judaism.stackexchange.com/q/59928/759 does seem like the same question; sorry that I missed it before. How do I close this question as a duplicate?

@JJLL just to be clear, we'll continue to pay use tax even if there's no halakhic reason to do so---it's just that if there is an obligation under halakha, my wife will feel happier about paying :)

@Dude it varies based on the size of the retailer. Amazon now seems to collect sales tax, but my wife buys crafting supplies over the internet from out-of-state retailers, and they don't seem to deduct sales tax most of the time. And then the (secular) legal rule is that if you use something in your state of residence, and didn't pay sales tax at purchase, then you have to pay use tax. This is the case in most states; see e.g. tax.ny.gov/pubs_and_bulls/tg_bulletins/st/… and revenue.state.il.us/Individuals/FAQs-Use-Tax.htm

Actually, I'm not a little confused about the scope of that leniency. Suppose A owns 1 share of apple stock, or of some other stock which doesn't pay a dividend. Can B lend A 100 shares of the stock for a year? Since the stock could well appreciate considerably, the borrower would probably end up paying back something noticeably worth more than they borrowed---is this really ok?
