This graphic shows the estimated, combined state and local sales tax rates for all 50 US states for the 2016 tax year.
- New Hampshire, and
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%
