    Don't know about NY laws but being in MA I used to do this all the time. Sure you are supposed to report it on your taxes, but I would go in with a MA school ID, MA drivers license, MA bank account and never once paid taxes. It was a nice loophole when I was in school. Now, I just can usually get a deal on Amazon with free shipping and no taxes so I don't deal with the trip from Boston to get goods.

    I got the very first Aluminum Powerbook to leave their store when I was in college :)

    PS.. if you've never been there, getting off the highway and into the mall can be somewhat confusing. Good luck ;)

    Your credit card billing address doesn't matter if you are buying in store - you will not be charged sales tax if you buy in New Hampshire.

    HOWEVER, if your state has a "use tax," you will be required to declare your purchase on your yearly income tax return and pay the use tax rate. But... States rarely enforce their use tax rules.
