I don't know about that, but Washington State has no income tax and Oregon has no sales tax. You could live in Vancouver, WA and do your shopping across the border in Oregon.

Some states seem to be trying to clamp down on this kind of cross border shopping. California on this year's state tax forms asked for the value of goods bought out of state and wanted sales tax for them. You could, of course, say zero dollars but then if that's not true you've just committed perjury. Will they find out? Not too likely right now.
