    YES they can as long as they are a registered sales and use tax collector for the area that you are making this purchase in for this purpose.

    if you are living in NY and the business place you are buying the box from also has a nexus in NY, of course they can charge sales tax

    if you are buying this from an individual who is in Minn, no they cannot

    If you live in NYS, they certainly can.
