Food and clothing are about it, Jim. If you want to be really generous then fuel is also a necessity, but I don't know of any place where fuel is exempted from sales taxes. Well, maybe for retired folks heating fuel is exempted somewhere or other, but if so I don't know where that might be. Here in PA, food and clothing are both exempted from sales taxes, by the way. Naturally enough, many Reps want to tax those things and get rid of property taxes. I hate property taxes myself, but at the same time, I think property taxes can also be thought of as being a sort of graduated tax system, at least on the assumption that people with more income buy more expensive houses and so they pay more in property taxes. It's pretty indirect as a graduation of the taxes, though.
