    Oregon doesn't have a sales tax, just about every election they try to find a way around that, we don't let em,.. just vote no.

    Here, the sales tax on food is only 3%. Sodas are taxed as food items so if I buy a Coke for a dollar I only pay 3 cents in tax.

    Depending on which city or parish you live in taxes on non food items are around 10%. Pretty irksome if you buy a $40,000 truck and then have to pay an extra $4,000. A few years ago I bought a used van from an ad on Craigslist. I paid $5500 for it but we wrote the bill of sale to show the price was $1000 so when I registered the vehicle I only had to pay $100 in tax instead of $550. It's a pretty common practice but car dealers don't go along with it.
