US Taxes, non-resident
 
I recently visited Las Vegas. I'm a Canadian citizen and I've heard rumors that we can claim all of the state tax back if we keep our receipts. Is this true, if so, what form would I fill out or who do I need to talk to? I can't find much information googling.

I know that if a US resident visits Canada, we allow them to fill out a form and get refunded any GST(Government Sales Tax) they were charged.

Here is the State of Nevada Tourism web site:

I think if you start looking there you'll find a "contact us" link somewhere, and you could ask them directly.

I've fired off an e-mail to them. Not expecting a reply, but who knows? :laughing:

If your in the states, maybe pick up a phone book and call an accountant, they might know.
or since its sales tax, maybe Chamber Of Commerce

Nope, I'm back home. :)

The title of this thread is deceptive. You are seeking a rebate of state sales taxes, not US taxes.

Most states won't refund these taxes, in such cases as tourists, etc.

Next time visit a place like Delaware, where there are no sales taxes... :whistling2:
