Cheers! M2

Just to clarify: it's safe to say that there is indeed a state income tax in Delaware and that some folks are exempt. . Most people in DE however, are subject to a state income tax.

I did not know it was 8.125% in Texas. That is about the same as Cali.

I'm in Tennessee at the moment. The state sales tax rate is officially 7% but the local governments have the option to tack on up to 2.75% additionally...and most do! This effectively brings the sales tax rate to 9.75%...which is amongst the highest in the nation.

$1450 x 7% = $101 Seriously...NJ is not to smart if this is the case.

Similar to Texas, though we are lower... The State Rate is 6.25%, but county, cities, transit districts, and other special purpose districts can tack on more up to 8.25%.

If you pay attention as you buy stuff in different parts of the state you will notice differences in the rate....

Exactly how would this help the sales tax rate? There are casinos everywhere in WA and the sales tax rate there is still higher. Granted they do have lower property taxes but that was true before all the casinos came to be. IMHO casinos would bring nothing good to Texas, only more trouble.

Hehe....most Jersey women like to be seen buying those on 5th Avenue...in NYC. No tax money for NJ anyway.
I think "being seen" is part of the allure.
