I didn't think New Hampshire had sales tax anyway.
I don't know about income tax though. I so found that out the idiotic way though...
Flashback to me and my friend in Walmart in Lebanon, New Hampshire...
Melissa: Hmm... do you know what the sales tax is in New Hampshire?
Deborah: Sales tax? They don't have anything like that.
Melissa (thinking she is crazy and unaware of U.S shopping practices... (she's from Scotland)): Yes they do!
Deborah: Well, they never charged me for it before.
Melissa: Maybe you just didn't notice. ALL states have sales tax.
Deborah: I'm sure they don't.
Melissa: Whatever, I'm going to go and ask that guy over there.
Excuse me? Could you tell me what the sales tax is here?
Walmart Employee (with puzzled look on face): There is none.
Melissa: oh... um, thanks.
Anyway, that is a little absurd but it would be pretty funny I think. A lot of tourists would be like, what?...?
