Whatever your state/county/city sales tax is. All other taxes are already figured into the price of the gun.

Here in Nassau county, Florida it would be:
$299.00 +7% =$319.93 + $5.00 background check =
$324.93 out the door

They may go for it. More likely to back the tax into the price. $299.99-8% discount= $269.00 times 8% tax to = the $299.99.

Goverment gets the tax,Owner makes the sale, Everybody happy.

I think the OP is probably wondering if there are special (gun) taxes as for example on full autos.

The answer is no. He will pay the usual sales taxes he pays on any other purchase he makes in MN and the city in which he lives.

There are no special Federal taxes on the purchase of a handgun. There is no special tax stamp, or anything of the sort.

Walk away from any dealer that tells you he has to add on the Federal Excise Tax. I saw a dealer at a gun show do that to a guy once. He gave a guy a price for a gun (Glock model of some kind) then told the guy he had to add 11% to the price and sale tax on top of that.

thats 277.76 + the 8% tax (299.99/1.08 is how you figure the price before tax)

i havent met many who wouldnt go for the out the door price when youre holding cash in your hand unless the price is already rock bottom.

The politicians in SC had an enlightenment and decided to give us gunbuyers a break. They recently had a tax free weekend on gun sales. Of course that would only happen in the south. Thats the only thing they have done right for a change.
