Anna's Tax Wholesale Sale

Anna's Tax Wholesale Sale::

Onesome: Anna's Tax-- Okay, what is the most onerous tax you've ever run across? Yes, alcohol and tobacco can fit in, but I was thinking of some regional quirk...

I found this article online America's wackiest taxes. It lists some odd taxes such as "Playing card tax: If you want a deck of cards in Alabama, be prepared to shell out an extra dime. The state government has levied a 10-cent tax on the purchase of a playing deck that contains "no more than 54 cards," plus the retailer must pay an annual license tax of $3 and a fee of $1, according to the Alabama Department of Revenue."

Twosome: Wholesale-- or retail? Do you prefer to drive to the wholesale stores to save over the regular store prices? ...or does the handy 5000 pack of macaroni and cheese not work for you?

I prefer to purchase most items in small quantities at the regular store. All the wholesale/warehouse stores are too far away and I would spend all my savings from those stores on gas money.

Threesome: Sale-- Do you have 'Tax Free' sales in your area? Every so often one of the hardware places has a "We Pay the Sales Tax" weekend. ...and hey, 8% is 8%!

The local Wal Mart does this for school supplies each year but that is it. I wish a few of the other stores would have these sales now and then.
