The Pacific Northwest state of Oregon contains a diverse landscape, from the windswept coastline of the Pacific Ocean to the rugged Cascade mountains to dense forests giving way to desert across the eastern portion of the state. Its natural beauty draws thousands of tourists to the state each year.
Oregon is home to the deepest river gorge, tallest tree, and deepest lake in the United States, and the largest sea cave in the world. In 1858, gold was discovered in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon.
Bullion Sales Tax in Oregon
The state of Oregon does not have sales tax (http://www.oregon.gov/DOR/Pages/salestax.aspx). As such, all purchases of coins, paper currency, and precious metal bullion are tax-free, regardless of the type or quantity being purchased.
This has made Oregon one of the most popular states for buying gold and silver for investment purposes. Regardless of the type or quantity of precious metal purchased, it is not taxable in Oregon. Your money goes further when buying from Oregon coin dealers due to the lack of sales tax.
JM Bullion, being an out of state retailer, does NOT have to charge sales tax to Oregon residents. Browse our selection of tax-free gold and silver products. Please note that we are not tax experts, and individuals may be liable to pay local Use tax.
