Re: Er ....

The US sales tax system is a real mess. It would be completely fine if states charged different sales tax, but you have tons of local taxes, city taxes, weird taxes that apply to this side of the street and not the other, and even: Tax holidays, which are periods of a few days during which a certain sales tax is reduced or eliminated... But only for certain items.

For instance, in Connecticut, you don't have to pay the state sales tax if you buy clothes during the third week of August.
