In New Mexico, you have to pay more than everyone else
The New Mexico legislature is proposing House Bill 583, which imposes an excise tax on televisions, video game software and hardware.

Customers will have to pay an extra 1 percent tax on purchases in addition to the gross receipts tax and other applicable state or federal tax.

Extra money created by “Television Tax” will go towards a state treasury fund named the “Leave No Child Inside Fund".

Then from there will be put towards state parks and the public education department for programs in hopes of encouraging school children to frequent the outdoors.
