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