Re: Tax Refund
Most merchants will mail stuff out of State/country and not charge sales tax. I've had a few merchants not charge me sales tax when I explained I was from out of state and getting on a plane and leaving the State. That took a bit of talking, however.
Failing that or finding a State that will refund sales tax, a few States like Oregun don't have any sales tax. You can buy anything there and not pay any sales tax as long as you don't have to register in another State. Even then, some States won't charge saies tax when you register the boat/vehicle there. It's a hodge podge so you need to check with each STate to find out what there policies are.
