Arrow Tax

10 of 25

No matter which state you visit, arrows will cost you. In 2012, the feds upped a long-standing excise tax on arrows. Now archery enthusiasts pay the Tax Man an additional 46 cents for arrows 18 inches or longer. Wooden arrows designed for kids are exempt, and the funds go toward wildlife restoration. (If you were wondering, bows are taxed at 11 percent.)
