In California, artificial snow is subject to sales tax. Regardless of its short life-span, or the fact that it is basically frozen water, snow is considered a tangible asset rather than a service. Has California tried to audit God yet? Not that I’m aware of, but I wouldn’t put it past them.

Alaska has a sales tax exemption for any item of tangible personal property that has been launched into space. It doesn’t matter whether those items have returned from space or not. This could be the loophole of the future!

A marijuana plant may be legal in Washington State, but it is not considered an agricultural item. The drug therefore misses out on any Washington State tax exemptions.
