Washington state, baby! As of yet, we have no boutique.....= no sales tax. I just took delivery for a CA friend of a croc (savings over 1K approx), so I know WA state rocks in many ways!

We are scheduled to have our first Hermes boutique when the luxury mall opens in 2009, however...so that lil tax perk will be ending then.

For you northeast tpfr's, Connecticut does not have an official H boutique, so ZERO tax there. There is a "counter" or something in Greenwich which apparently does not alter the tax situation. I cannot take credit for this info, as it came from a lovely tpfr here!! :heart:

There are a couple of small Hermes franchise boutiques in Connecticut -- Richards in Greenwich and Mitchells in Westport. That's why there's no tax to have something sent to Connecticut from an Hermes boutique outside of Connecticut.

Each county differs (i believe?), but as far as i know, it's still 7.000%. Pretty low if you ask me. New York is 8.250%, right?

Florida has a salex tax based on county. Best place to shop in the US is Delaware, no sales tax at all!

I think the real trick is to find a state that has no boutique and that way, you will have no sales tax. There are quite a few. You just need to have somone living there to send it to who can then send it back to you. Anyone out there in Alaska or Wyoming?
