Fair enough, I should have been more specific. Every state has property taxes levied at the local level. Every state has some kind of tax not generally understood by the public, like the examples you give. My point stands however, that those states rely on a consumption tax as their primary source of revenue and have some of the healthiest economies in the country.Florida has a 5.5% corporate income tax rate. Tennessee has a 1% flat tax on income earned from interest and dividends, though in 2019, the tax was 2%. Texas has some of the highest property taxes in the U.S. , they are levied at the local level rather than state level.
So none of the state's you listed relies solely on sales taxes.
