New Hampshire is one of the few states with no statewide sales tax. There are, however, several specific taxes levied on particular services or products. These excises include a 9% tax on restaurants and prepared food consumed on-premises, a 9% tax on room and car rentals, a tax of $0.00055 cents per megawatt-hour on electricity, and a 7% tax on telecommunications services.
While New Hampshire does not collect a sales tax, excise taxes are levied on the sale of certain products, including alcohol, cigarettes & tobacco, and gasoline. These excise taxes are passed on to the consumer in the goods' price.
