    It couldn't be googled because none of those states have a VAT. VAT is for Europe. If you want to buy wholesale, you need a federal EIN that you can get for free at irs.gov .

    In Europe a business vehicle is exempt from the VAT in many of the countries,is it the same for the sales tax in any states in the U.S.?

    Yes. The only difference is your tax in Europe is much higher. VAT is 18-20, we charge state tax. About 4-10% . My state charges 6%, if I drive 20 minutes south to Tennessee, I'm charged 10% .

    Actually VAT varies from 0% to 20% depending on the item. I think food and medicine are usually exempt in most countries and there are reduced vat for items such as books.

    What I do like about Europe that they need to do in the U.S. is to include the sales tax in the final price of the item. Really wtf do they not do this at most places. It would make shopping so much easier,I've only seen it at sports venues and the cinema.

    There is no VAT tax. Taxes vary state to state and if you only charge tax to customers who live in the same state as you.
