anyhow... with the exchange rate being so damn good, I have decided that I'm going to buy a whole load of CDs...

the only question I have, is this...

what is the sales tax in New York? (4%?) does it apply to tourists -(can I claim tax back at the airport in the same way as you can with the tax paid at some british shops that advertise tax free shopping?), I know that it applies to clothes/sports equipment, but does it apply to CD's?

I don't need to have an exact breakdown... I really only care about the items that it applies to, (specifically CDs).
Ugh...our sales tax here is 8.75% now I think. In NYC though, it's around 8%, I'm pretty sure it's 8.35%. And the city itself's tax is 4%, but you have to add in a whole bunch of other stuff.

As for being able to get the money back, I'm not sure.
