Sales Tax Chart with visuals




This page features a state sales tax chart, with each state's average sales tax rate (percentage of purchase price) as of 2014.  

This data was found on a US Tax Administration web page, and on other government approved websites.


Sales tax is an extra percentage of the purchase price of an item.

It is collected from the buyer by the seller, then remitted by the seller to a designated government agency.

The state with the lowest cost of living is Oklahoma, followed closely by Arkansas and Texas. But sales taxes in these states are relatively high. Hawaii, on the other hand, has (by far) the highest cost of living, yet it's sales tax rate is rather low (4 %).

The state with the highest average sales tax is California. The states of Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon do not impose any state sales tax at all.
