In Utah, a portion of the sales tax from each sale goes to the ZIP Code where the store is located and a portion goes to the area where the spender lives.

@GZE can you site your statement? I have never heard tax remittance based on buyers residence and not the place of purchase.

@GZE - there is no mechanism to credit sales tax to the place of residence of the spender. Those taxes go to the state, county and city where the transaction occurs. Period.

For Pete's sake! Just because they ask you for your zip code doesn't mean you have to give them the correct one. I live in one state and give them an zip code in another state. Never had a problem. I always thought it was none of their business.
