If I average out the 2 years, my US subscription is only costing me just over 11 bucks a month and I don't pay any tax at all for the service.. No state tax, no PST, no GST

I didn't realize that Arizona didn't charge sales tax on satellite radio subs. (Their sales tax rate is normally 5.6% on everything except food and prescription drugs.) For an example at the other end of the spectrum, Florida's state sales tax is 6% on everything except food, prescription and non-prescription drugs and... satellite radio subs which they charge 15%!

Just to add, the US states which do not charge sales tax on anything are:

New Hampshire
