What is the average Hawaii sales tax rate?


The state actually has no sales tax, but charges businesses a 4% excise tax, which is basically the same thing as a sales tax. The business actually has the choice of collecting it from customer if they choose. If the business messes it up, they still have to pay the excise tax on the income received. The average local tax is 4-5% making a total of 8-9% “Sales” tax on anything you buy in the islands. There are also tons of hospitality type taxes on tourism, as this is the main part of Hawaii economy.
