I thought I was being a Savvy buyer once when I purchased my inflatable. I purchased in a town that was considered an " enterprise zone" with only 3% sales tax. But Low and behold, when I went to the DMV to register it. They informed me that Boat Purchases were not subject to the reduced tax, and I owed them an additional 3% tax.
