BillsYesterday PlayStation Vue started to contact subscribers to inform them that they plan to collect sales tax in select states. PlayStation Vue had already collected taxes in select states and towns. Now Sony is expanding to collect sales tax in select states starting October 1st, 2018.

Here is the Email Sony is sending out:

We are writing to inform you that PlayStation™Store, PlayStation™Vue, PlayStation®Plus, PlayStation™Now, and PlayStation®Music, will start collecting sales tax in your state starting October 1, 2018. The sales tax charged on each order is determined by your state, county and city tax rates.

Sony has not said why the plan to start charging sales tax now. Recently there has been a push by states to collect sales tax from online services. Recently Amazon started to collect sales taxes in all states that charge them. Now other companies like Sony are following suit.
