I work as a bartender/server in the Portland Airport. A large portion of my sales are to customers from other states. I am in a unique situation because my income is largely gratuities, on which I pay income tax. When an out of state customer does not tip me on their purchases, I feel like I am effectively losing money, or at least paying for their privilege to eat lunch sales tax-free. I have no problem paying my taxes, but there seems to be many situations where the system is not quite fair.
