This table of sales tax rates by state is updated on a monthly basis from various State Department of Revenue materials and commercial tax rate providers. Tax rates are current as of August 2016, and we will update this table again in September.

Many states allow municipal governments to collect local-option sales taxes. For quick reference, we have included the minimum and maximum local tax rates that occur within each state as well as the sum of the state sales tax rate + the average local option sales tax rate.
