Why are american prices without taxes?

Is it because every state has different tax rates?

That's about one of the most annoying things I can imagine. When heard about first time, I thought that it was just retarded joke until I checked the facts.

In California we pay a 7.5% sales tax so if the price of a bicycle is $100 you will end up paying 107.50 at the register

sales tax doesn't apply to food though

there are a couple states with no sales tax at all like oregon and montana, but have a very high income tax which offsets the amount lost with no sales tax. Also, there are states with a moderately high sales tax, maybe 10%, but have no income tax which means they rely mostly on property taxes to fund the state. I know florida, texas, nevada and washington have no income tax, there's probably a couple more. and btw the sales tax in my city is 9%

^I think NH is like that too, no sales tax but high property tax

You just get used to sales tax though. It's usually not much until you get into hundreds of dollars

i believe the topic is asking why it's just not listed at 107.50. I don't think there is any legal reason why
