You're going to have to start paying sales tax on all of your online orders soon.

The Michigan Treasury Department announced Monday it will start collecting the 6% tax on everything sold in the state as of October 1st. Shoppers are still on the honor system at many web sites until then.

A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision opened the door for the new policy.

The state estimates it will bring in an extra $200 million in revenue a year.
