 It used to be that way here in Texas but a few years ago they added school supplies to the list. I live within an hour of the New Mexico boarder, if we decide we need a computer or computer related things I might take a trip over there because theres includes computers & computer hardware.

Yep, my state does for clothes and supplies.  Good to know when it is.

Still so weird to me, lol. I think I may live in the only state without a sales tax! It would be so annoying to me to have to pay tax on everything I buy! We have meals tax, on any prepared food, and I justify it to myself that someone else prepared it so the tax makes sense. I guess our property taxes make up for it though :/

 Do you pay a state income tax? In my state (Texas) We have NO state income tax & food is not taxed unless it is prepared food like at a restaurant. Everything else is taxed.

Nope. Literally only taxes are federal income, property, prepared food (9%), and maybe cigarettes? I'm not sure because I don't buy them but I know they cost an arm and a leg. Regular food like at the grocery store is not taxed (unless you buy like a cooked rotisserie chicken or something). And no state income tax.
