The sales tax rate in Alaska varies by location. The state does not have a statewide sales tax, but some municipalities, cities, and boroughs have local sales taxes. These local sales tax rates can range from 0% to 7.5%.
For example, the city of Anchorage has a sales tax rate of 5%, while the city of Juneau has a sales tax rate of 5.5%. Some cities and boroughs in Alaska also have a cap on the total amount of sales tax that can be charged, which varies by location.
It's important to note that Alaska also has a state use tax, which is a tax on goods purchased outside of Alaska for use within the state. The use tax rate is generally the same as the local sales tax rate in the buyer's location.
