Boston Airport Terminal B - help needed - tax back??

Does anyone know if I can claim back the tax I have paid on goods at the airport? I am flying from Boston Terminal B

Many thanks

Unlike Canada, we don't have a "Value-Added" tax to get back. The only tax you pay for goods in Massacjusetts is the 5% sales tax, which you don't get back under any circumstances. By the way, even the sales tax isn't applied to everything. All clothes items under $175 are exempted, for example, so the tax take really isn't high.

Also, goods purchased at the airport in duty free, shouldn't have tax.
