These guys seem to make this stuff up. There is no rhyme nor reason.
Washington, Nevada, Texas, Wyoming, South Dakota and Florida do not have State Income Tax.
And South Dakota has a very low cost of living.
I have become quite skeptical of any of the top 10 articles.
The "researcher" was lazy. Take SC for example, In Mt. Pleasant you pay 9% sales tax when you buy a burger, 6% state sales tax and 3% loca sales tax. In North charleston, it is 6% and 2%. etc. Also, in N. charleston, if your dog leaves your property without a leash, like my 7 lb mini-pinscher which soemtimes escapes, the fine is $ 1,000.00, even if the dog is fixed, payable at the pound after they ID you first and then tell you you are fined. That is a tax. On Sullivan's Island, we only paid $ 200.00 fine when the dog escaped. Still a tax. No legitimate public purpose, just a hidden tax.
Actaully, you pay taxes on everything you do here..
All the states mentioned are beautiful. I wish California was like it was in the 50's great place, open spaces , clean water , good people, now all ten look good to me. Nevada is the only one I have been to on a regular basis. I must some of it is beautiful and some not so pretty. But everyone from the building department , post office, NHP, Capitol Building are some of the nicest people I have worked with ever. You want a good place to live Nevada is great. People in general just don't think like the coast. Rent and housing is reasonable, food is the same, but you can't beat a true Nevadan , just good ole boys with a brain.
I clicked through pretty quickly; thanks for not sending 'em all to Cali!
We just raised the rates on the wealthy, and don't have anything of value to offer anyway...
I look forward to visiting all the states you mentioned (in season; well, those that actually have a decent season ;))
p.s. it seems that sales and property as well as retirement duns in Texas at least warrants an honorable mention in the article if not a position in the top 5.
property taxes in louisiana are not high with homestead exemption and state income tax
is very small and yes new orleans schools are horrible as are most public schools in louisiana,
however why anyone retiring give a damn about schools. the private schools are excellent i
might say. everyone knows whats wrong with our schools but stating it is politically
Grey Ghost000, assumptions and opinions are all you quote. what facts do you have? What exactly is this Obama social agenda ? Please don’t give me your opinion or assumption on what it is.
