In preparation for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we recently rounded up the US states with the lowest state and local sales taxes.
But if you don’t live in those states, you might need to expand your holiday shopping budget. The higher the state and local sales taxes, the more you may be spending on top of those Black Friday sales.
Goods and services that apply to sales tax, such as groceries or clothing, vary by state, according to the Tax Foundation. Some cities also have a local tax set by the local government.
We found out where residents pay the most in sales tax by consulting the Tax Foundation, which listed state sales tax rates and average local sales tax rates. This ranking does not take into account state income taxes.
