I don't know if they do this anymore, but when I lived in Oregon, and was in Washington frequently, I had a card that exempted me from Wash. State sales tax. I forgot what they call it.

You could get it at just about any store just by showing your Oregon ID.

Don't laugh, but everyone referred to it as the "Green Card," because it WAS green. I haven't used one for a number of years, my Oregon State issued drivers license is what all the store keepers ask for now....at least the places I've shopped. Most stores have a minimum purchase requirement in order for us Oregonians to get out of paying the tax...usually around $20.

Since we don't pay sales tax here in Oregon, if a person keeps their receipts for sales tax and files income tax with deductions, we can write off the sales tax....but, that's a tiny percentage.

I think the usual deciding factor is place of residence, rather than delivery point, but there's lots of good information provided here based on actual experience. I believe that Casita told me that I would not pay Texas tax, but would pay our GST, but since I didn't choose to buy their trailer I never saw how it would work out.

I know people in Ontario used the same phony Bill Of Sale value method as Gina described to commit tax fraud there, and apparently it worked. I suppose you pay your money (or don't pay your taxes) and take your chances. Not for me. I also would be cautious about dealing with any business which was willing to do this, since I would wonder what other laws they considered optional.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
