i put it this way: after seeing "unlike blabla...", i immediately start searching which this blabla is compared to. "income taxes" are compared to "sales taxes", that's it. answer is (e).

E is the correct answer. This is a Comparison question, and we know this because the sentence begins with Unlike. The thing or person immediately following Unlike is what we are going to compare, in this case most income taxes. The part of the sentence that begins with which is just extra information, so the last clause (part)of the sentence is the important part. We have to choose the answer choice that begins with something that can be compared with most income taxes. Unlike most income taxes...sales taxes, is the only possible comparison in the answer choice, and therefore E is correct.
