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.

Why bother. That has about as good a chance of working as a border guard asking someone if he's a terrorist and the guy saying, "yepper, i sure am, you think i'm bluffing check out my luggage".
