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.

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

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...
