What are the sales tax free states?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I want a complete list of sales tax free (at least on clothing) states.  Google came up with nothing.  Here's what I know: Oregon & New Hampshires have no sales tax on everything. NJ & PA have no sales tax on clothing. Alberta has no sales tax on everything but still subject to GST. If I remember correctly MA have no sales tax on clothing for the first $175, is it still true? NYC used to have no sales tax on clothing costing less than $110. Now, it only applies to 2 one-week periods per year. Anyone knows of any states that are totally or partially sales tax free?

Minnesota has no sales tax on clothes. And there is a Neiman Marcus, albeit small, in Minneapolis Scott

Massachusetts levies no sales tax on an individual item of apparel costing less than $200, I believe. I'm such a bargainhunter, I've only had to fork out to the Commonwealth a couple of times and I don't remember the threshold figure. It may well be higher now; don't know. What can my fellow Bostonians tell us about this?

It used to be $150 for each article. I suppose it's gone up, if they haven't done away with it all together.

There is no tax here in Guam. However they have what the call GRT (gross Receipt tax) that is paid by the vendor. So it is probably passed on to us, we just don't know it. It is so Guam

Montana is without any sales tax (or likely any clothes you would want to buy unless you have a western penchant or need outdoor gear).

Massachusetts is $175. And that's on an individual item, not your total purchase. So, if you buy 10 shirts for $100 each, you aren't getting taxed at all. Still, the tax can be annoying on bigger ticket items such as suits and shoes. (I can't believe I listed shoes as a big ticket item -- a year ago at this time I though Bacco Bucci was out of my price range. Funny what the styleforum, a nice paycheck, and knowing how nice it is to wear excellent shoes can do for you).

NYC has a "tax free week" on clothing sales under $110. The tax free week starts today and ends on Sunday or next Monday. There used to be a permanent exemption for clothing under $110, but the state needed the money. The city wants the exemption permanently. When the exemption was permanent, Turnbull & Asser, with tough in cheek, re-priced all of it ties from $110.00 to $109.99.

Nevada has no sales tax. Nor, I believe, does Arizona, but I won't swear to it. Will

AZ has tax. 5% or so.

Nevada has no income tax, but has a sales tax (I lived in Vegas for a couple of years). Oregon has no sales tax at all. Since I live in southeastern Washington, I buy clothes in Portland when I am over that way (no NM in Portland, though there are Saks and Nordstroms). Montana has no state sales tax, but if I recall a few tourist towns have a local sales tax. These are the only ones I know about out West.
