Map of the US

The United State is a large country that spans across an entire continent, from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Its system of governance includes many different levels and sections of government scattered across the nation. Each one of these, in their own respective locations, are able to set their own sales tax rates and as a result, sales tax can vary wildly depending on your exact location. In some areas, an entire state may have the same sales tax rate while in other areas, sales tax might be different even between two neighboring zip codes.

Our database of sales tax rates covers over 70,000+ locations within the entirety of the United States. That's all 50 states while also including Washington DC and Puerto Rico.

To find the most exact rates, search based on zip code at the top of the page. Otherwise, you can search for a larger geographical location and you'll see an average rate for that entire location along with other additional information.

For our international visitors, please note that sales tax in the United States is entirely paid by just the buyer in a sales transaction. This is different from most other countries in the world where sales tax manifests in the form of value added tax (VAT) where all parties in a transaction contribute to the tax.
