Washington is around 10% depending on the local tax. For a home improvement project I can drive my truck the 350 mile round trip and still be ahead. I go to Portland at least every quarter and stock up on everything. Boose taxes are even worse. I drive to LA and or Vegas at least twice a year for vacation. I stock up on boose then. I buy all my tires or wheels in Oregon. Same with electronics. We make lists and spend at least a grand on every trip. Very little is purchased in WA except food and no tax on that. The libards that run WA just waste it anyway. I did buy the wheels for my 98 Vette in CA from West Coast Corvettes. The CA tax is lower and was less than shipping and they rode free in my trucks canopy. Plus no risk of shipping damage. But my trucks wheels and tires are from OR.

Some of you guys are lucky and live close to a border of another state or states which have "reasonable" taxes.. (if ya wanna call taxes reasonable) IMHO ALL taxes are oppressive and all the politicians do is piss it away..

Where I am at, in South Florida there is no other state close by, therefore we shop in different counties, for example I don't ever buy ANYTHING in Dade county OR Palm Beach county (Miami, their taxes is .5% higher than Broward, Ft Lauderdale & it is also higher in Palm Beach as I recall).. I however am stuck, north and south of me taxes are higher.. If I have to drive for a bargain it is no longer a bargain, so I pay.. OR I shop using da internet.. Join amazon prime, no shipping (usually) and no taxes (so far).. God willing the conservatives in the HOR will shoot down the senates new taxes for state taxes on internet commerce...

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. Abraham Lincoln

The Constitution is essentially an obsolete charter of negative liberties. Barack Obama
