Re: It's still really hard to complain
Legally, in most States, if you cross the border to buy something and bring it back, you're supposed to pay them the difference in tax rates. Some do go a step further and will allow you to write off the taxes paid in another State if they're higher. Most folks ignore those areas of the tax forms for obvious reasons.
There used to be a tax dodge where you declared yourself a member of clergy and took a vow of poverty. You never had to pay taxes on income but there exceptions and rules to extract some money out of you. I do believe that loop hole has been closed.
