The Supreme Court ruling on sales tax could be implemented in weeks - according to the news I hear. Will I have to pay sales tax on my PGXL when it become available? It has been on order since 2017 Dayton. I am assuming that I would be charged the tax. I would consider paying the balance in advance if it would save me the tax!

the ruling may have no effect in your particular transaction at this time. Or anytime soon even.
One of my accountant buddies sent me this link:
Remember avoiding taxes is wise but evasion is stupid & criminal. A lot of states put consumers on the honor system to volunteer to pay taxes on out of state purchases and may pursue blatant disregard of rules.
YMMV but I aim to pay one dollar more in taxes I actually owe each year so I can wear the white hat and ride the high ground.
1) Only 45 states collect sales taxes
2) The SCOTUS decision only says that states can collect sales taxes from out of state retailers, it will be up to each state to implement that process
3) I expect most states will decide to implement sales taxes on our-of-state purchases, but it will have to work it's way through your state gov't before being implemented.
4) This strikes me as a bad decision, since it obligates a business that has decided not to locate in a particular state to still be obligated to operate under the laws of that state they choose not to do business in, but this isn't a political forum.
