stateside sales tax
Someone told me that if I go to the states and show my VI license I don't have to pay sales tax. This sounds too good to be true, but then I was thinking that I think this is true for the US states that don't pay sales tax (ex: Oregon residents don't have to pay sales tax in California). Can anyone confirm or deny this?
When we bought our boat in Florida, we didn't have to pay tax because we were leaving the country on it within 30 days. (or some specified time period)
Also, I think, if you are not taking delivery of the product, but having it mailed to the VI, you might be exempt, like when ordering online. But, if you just go into a store, buy a product and walk out of the store with it, you have to pay.
