Recently I was in Anchorage and in Fairbanks, and it was wonderful not paying any sales tax. It was almost liberating. The prices on the shelves are what I paid, not a penny more.
I say, cancel the sales tax all together. This will mean decreased revenue for the city and borough. That's their problem. They need to lower their costs anyway. And it will give people a real incentive to buy locally. Let's all ban together and tell our local governments to become smaller and stop robbing us.
