What is an Sales Tax Calculator?

Sales tax is a tax on the sale of goods and services. In the US and the District of Columbia all states except Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon impose a state sales tax when you buy items or pay for services. Alaska however does allow localities to charge local sales taxes as do many other states.

Some states do not charge sales tax on specific categories of items. In Massachusetts for example sales tax is not charged on regular grocery items. Also many states have additional tax surcharges. In the hospitality industry it is common for restaurants and hotels to charge a tax rate higher than the state sales tax rate. Check with your state and locality for expected sales tax rates and potential tax surcharge rates.
