Do you pay sales tax in your state?

If so, where do you live and what percentage do you pay? I live in Oregon and we don't have a sales tax.

  • I live in Canada and in our province it is 13% VAT on almost everything . There are exceptions such as food and prescription drugs and a few items , such as books, are taxed at a 5% rate .

  • A vote down for paying sales tax in CA? Seriously? Way too much time on their hands.

    I live in CA as well and in addition to the state sales tax, we pay a county tax - so it comes up to being 8.975%.

  • Yes. In missouri. It depends on what city you are in though. I live in a suburb & the tax is like 8% (8 point something). Another town I lived in the tax was only 6.5%.

  • Colorado state tax is 2.9% but our county tax is 2% and the city is 2.75%. So we pay 7.65%.
