State and Local Sales Tax Rates Map for 2016

State and Local Combined Sales Tax Rates for 2016

This graphic shows the estimated, combined state and local sales tax rates for all 50 US states for the 2016 tax year.
These five states do not have statewide sales taxes: 
  1. Alaska, 
  2. Delaware, 
  3. Montana, 
  4. New Hampshire, and 
  5. Oregon. 
Of these, Alaska and Montana allow local cities and/or counties to charge local sales taxes.

California (aka Taxifornia) has the highest state sales tax at 7.5% but 1% of that must be distributed to local cities so you could argue it should only be 6.5% on that map.

When you add in local taxes, several places have higher combined tax rates than California such as the city of Chigago with a combined sales tax rate of 10.25%

For more, see "State Income Tax Rates Map For 2016" California has highest rate @ 13.3%
