NJ has pretty high sales tax.

It is true that NJ has a sales tax, but rates have been fairly typical. Not especially high.

And the funny thing about it is that almost everything you buy (food, clothing, drugs) are exempt. Hence, some people say it is mostly a restaurant tax.

You also pay it on furniture, electronics and autos, but it is quite passive compared to what people pay in other states.
