My OR residency came out with small talk with the salesclerk, she looked at my OR driver's license, pushed a couple of buttons on the register, and voila! no WA sales tax to pay. Pretty cool.
Not that this has much to do with cycling, but residents of Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon don't have to pay sales tax in Washington. However, it's up to the retailer whether they allow the tax free sale.
