Default What's your town's tax rate?

Here, it's nearly 9% on everything except food -- that's 1.5%. And they apply the tax to pre-coupon prices! yesterday went to CVS, my subtotal was around $7, but my oop was around $17 because of $10 in taxes...

Here it is about 7.5 %
Yes we have to pay tax on pre coupon also.
At least some food is tax free, like milk & eggs.
We do pay tax on some foods, like chips & soda.
We even have to pay tax on the paper.
Sunday paper $1.50 + .11 tax = $1.61.

Only thing I miss about moving away from Oregon.
TAX FREE STATE.
NO SALES TAX ON ANY THING.

you get fined several hundred Euro if you are caught. otherwise there are other 'country' roads to take but most take forever to get where you want.
