HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Starting Friday, it's going to cost a bit more to buy items on Amazon.com.

The online retailer will begin collecting Connecticut's 6.35 percent sales tax.

It's part of a deal the company reached with the state in February.

State officials said Connecticut can expect to see an extra $15 million in tax revenue this fiscal year.
