Yes you do. Just because you are a resident of Alaska does not make you exempt from any kind of sales tax. If you go to another city, state, country, or whatever, you MUST abide by their laws. If California has sales tax, then you must pay it if you want to shop there. However, shopping in Seattle,… Alaska residents do not have to pay their sales tax if you let the clerk know you are an Alaska resident, show your valid ID, and fill out a form giving your name, driver's license number, and contact information.

In most cases 10 years. However, my most recent conversations with CA have indicated that the liens will stay on file even after the 10 years have passed until paid.
Yes. And this becomes very confusing because some places do, and some do not. Like Starbucks vs. Coffee Bean. It's a good question, and the answer is yes, they do, because in general they must, but some places like Coffee Bean don't, and that's what makes it confusing. Here's why they tax. Nowa…days in California, all hot and prepared food is taxable if 80% of the merchant's sales are food and beverages and 80% can be possibly consumed on site, with tables, chairs, whatever. But there is an exception for to-go hot food, bakery products and some cold foods that Coffee Bean takes advantage of. If the merchant petitions the Board of Equalization taxing authority, they don't have to charge sales tax on these items as long as they keep records and charge separately for the items. That's why at Coffee Bean they always ask you at the counter "for here or to-go?" Starbucks does not exempt items from sales tax and they don't have to if they don't want to-- they also include the tax within the price of the coffee or beverage. I visit Starbucks at Target. My drink costs $2.14, when I say to go, the drink is $1.95. Apparently when a Starbucks is located in Target you don't have to pay sales tax on drinks to go. Starbucks is ripping the consumer off by not making this fact known. 99% of ttheir customers get their drinks and leave, eg., to go. The employees have told me that Satrbucks told them not to tell the consumer this. ( Full Answer )

It depends. If the restocking fee is a percentage of the sale price then the percentage will be taken from the total sale, including the tax. In other words you refund will include a prorated portion of the tax. If it is a fixed amount such as $20 then it must exclude tax or the retailer will …be in violation of the tax code and be liable for the full amount taxed on the sale regardless of lesser refunded amount. If you are returning a defective item the retailer may elect to refund the tax. Although it is not a requirement, the retailer may not keep the taxes collected as profit. ( Full Answer )
