Just read this about tax exempt states, looks lik Oregon indeed has no state sales tax but doesnt look like they really win on their state taxes. But am curious if you drive to buy a pin in one of these states from another state, do you win? Looks like the state tax rate in Oregon is one of the highest in the country. Are there any nib pin dealers in these 5 states? If so do you live close enough that the driving costs doesnt kill it?
Oregon has a personal income tax usually ranking in the top 10 percent of the nation. Since Oregon does not have a sales tax, the primary source of revenue is the income tax. ... Four other states (Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire) also do not have a sales tax although some Alaska cities levy a sales tax.
Also wonder if you buy in one of these states do you have to provide an in state address and are you committing tax fraud if you lie?
