  • some states, like New Hampshire, have no sales tax. When i lived in MA, we drove to NH all the time to save a few bucks on things like Christmas shopping.

  • Some states don't have income taxes. Florida doesn't have income taxes, but on the flip side they have very high property taxes. I know a lot of people prefer to buy online because they can get around paying sales tax that way.

  • Here in Nevada, we have no state income tax. Our sales tax is high, but it's deductible.
