I am wondering about the researcher who lives in another state, but  
the client lives in NY?  Or is this like the online sales tax where  
the sales tax is collected only in the states where the store has a  
brick & mortar presence?

I suppose this means that any researcher in NY who charges for their  
services will have to set up a state tax account and collect a sales  
tax to report to the revenue department.  If I read the publication  
correctly that is what I am discovering.
FL has a number of services which must collect sales tax but  
genealogical services is not one of them.

A heads up to New York State based researchers:

New York State has implemented, as of 19 July 2010, a new way to raise  
further revenues.  Those who deal in information services must, as of  
1 September 2010, begin to charge, collect and remit sales tax on  
their products.

"Genealogical research services" are specifically mentioned.  See page  
two of the flier which can be found at the site listed below.
