A sales tax is a tax imposed by state and local governments on transactions that occur within their jurisdictions.
The taxing authority determines which transactions are subject to tax and the flat rate at which the tax is calculated. Some countries, though not the United States, impose a national sales tax often called a value added tax (VAT).
