I'm curious as to how this works out for the cities that don't have sales tax at all. Of all the taxes available, my city doesn't have a sales tax. Of course, that was a city decision, not a state or federal one.

This is why I can go to some states, flash my state ID (as long as it's not purchasing food) and pay no sales tax.

If I am correct, Alaska is one of the few state that don't have sales taxes.

Oregon too, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire.

Actually, my city is the only place in Alaska that don't have sales tax. BUT that doesn't stop the other people in Alaska from flashing their ID in other states and not pay sales tax.

Ummm... doesn't income tax scale with your income? i.e, the higher your income the more you have to pay?

I think US would do better in the long term by providing more incentive to bring back all the big companies into the country. Devalueing the green back might be a good idea to encourage people to shop for local products instead of imported stuff and boost export.
