2013 State Sales Tax Table & Chart

State Sales Tax Table

A State Sales Tax Table is the best ways we think we can show you how much EXTRA money you are paying State Governments in TAXES with every taxable purchase you make -- in all 50 States.

To ensure this information is as accurate as possible, we have provided the information as presented by "The Tax Foundation", which lists their Sources as the Sales Tax Clearinghouse, Tax Foundation calculations and State Revenue Department websites, to provide the Sales Tax percentage that each State can tack on to your taxable purchases.


So, keep in mind that the percentages you see below are Subject To Change.

Sales Tax Table



It's important to remember that a lot of folks have their hand out and want some of your money! Thus in addition to State level Sales TAXES, many of those "Local" varmits (localities) are authorized by their States to tack on an additional percentage for themselves also.

Heck, why not gauge the consumer anyway possible!

(a) City, county, and municipal rates vary. These rates are weighted by population to compute an average local tax rate.
(b) Three states collect a separate, uniform "local" add-on sales tax: California (1%), Utah (1.25%), Virginia (1%). We include these in their state sales tax.
(c) The sales taxes in Hawaii, New Mexico, and South Dakota have broad bases that include many services, so their rates are not strictly comparable to other states.
(d) Due to data limitations, table does not include sales taxes in local resort areas in Montana.
(e) Some counties in New Jersey are not subject to the statewide sales tax rate and collect a local rate of 3.5%. Their average local score is represented as a negative.
