Taxes

Why is it that the tax system varies between states in the United-States? For example, in the state of Alabama, the sales tax is 10% whereas in Delaware there is no sales tax. Also, why is it when you purchase an item in a store, the tax is not on the price tag? Are you supposed to guess the tax of each state? This one baffles non-Americans as it is the norm to have tax included in the price tag.
