Just for reference, Canad has a 5% Federal Sales Tax - the Goods and Services Tax or GST - and most provinces have a Provincial Sales Tax (PST). The combined sales tax rate ranges from 5% (in Alberta and all three territories) to 15.5% (in Prince Edward Island; they have a 10% PST and charge that on the GST). Saskatchewan, where I live, has a combined rate of 10% which is the second lowest in the country after Alberta.
One note I would make, Tennessee has no State income tax (like Texas, which didn't even make the list). Illinois (my current state of abode) not only made the list, but also has one of the highest state income tax rates--and they are still operating in deep deficit doo doo (couldn't resist the alliterative comment).
No state income tax here in Washington, either. Oregon has a state income tax but no sales tax.
