Here's another question

If your property fell on the border between two states...and your next-door, next-state neighbor had a lot of fruit trees right at the fence with branches that hung over to your side...and those trees bore lots of fruit that you could harvest without crossing the property line...and you made delicious jams and jellies from that fruit...and you somehow produced enough jars that you could sell them in a local store... then to which state would you have to pay sales tax?

One might also wonder (1) if the local store is in your state and (2) if someone died of food poisoning from eating your jam in the other state, could they arrest you while you were in your state?
