Sales taxes on the other hand are 8.75% since we don't have a state income tax.

Whereas in California the state sales tax is 7.25% and some localities add another 1.5%.

It needs to be so high because they DO have a state income tax.

And it costs a lot to have the best-paid public-school teachers, best-paid prison guards, etc. in the country.
