"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.

Can you still get a federal tax refund if you didn't pay state tax the year prior?

You can file a federal tax return and get a refund regardless of the status of your state taxes. If you owe overdue taxes to the state and they have gotten around to it, the state can intercept your federal refund. So, your refund might go to paying your overdue state taxes instead of being sent to you. But unless you file a federal tax return, no refund will be generated and your state taxes will not be paid.
