"No" originally posted by another user. I slightly disagree with the above information. I have lived in many places across Canada. When I moved to Alberta, and went shopping south of the border I was informed if I showed my Alberta government issued ID, I wouldn't have to pay any sales tax when shopping in the U.S. This has held true for all consecutive trips to the U.S. but is not available using just any province id, but there is a list of provinces that are elligable for the tax break. Just clarify if your province is elligable next time you find your self on American soil. I swear I once saw a brochure for a tax rebate for Canadians during one of my last trips to Washington. Check on the Immigration website to see if they have it there to download.
