Isn't it ironic that 6 of the 10 top states are ones that originally fought against taxes and government control.  Now they've become the very thing their forefathers fought against, the governing few telling you how to think(what you can teach in schools), eat, and spend your money(we'll make you pay for all those social programs even if you don't like them).  18th century England is alive and well, living in the colonies.

I live in East Greenbush NY and the full value of my property is about 290,000 and the combined property tax is about 8500.  NY should be number one as you have left the school tax out which is higher than the general property tax.

Libtards want to make everything the same for everyone except taxes.  Those with money can leave the state or country.  Its like your child not liking the the rules at home anymore.  What REALLY REALLY baffles me is who are the dumb f  ks who give these absolute idiots money to campaign and live like kings?

Having to pay for undocumented Democrats along with a new push for a  Bullet Train to nowhere, leaves no surprise that California leads all States in taxes? They now have a surplus and can't wait to spend it before reducing deficits.  It won't take long before those that vote for a living exceed those paying taxes. It's all Bush's fault anyway, right?

I could not find a state with the highest taxes that is not run by socialist-democrat party hacks.  I live in Northern Nevada and areas around Lake Tahoe are all high tax state escapees.  All of my neighbors are from high tax states, even Massachusetts, New York, etc.  I see them periodically.

Do better research...I have never experienced a mere 4% sales tax as long as I have lived in NY. In Saratoga County the rate is 7%, in Albany [state capital] it is 8% . The quintessential dysfunctional legislature [ they refuse  to meet during 'sessions' when they are angry with each others point of view.] is populated with convicted felons and when they actually meet, the discussions revolve around more ways to squeeze tax dollars from constituents [ i.e. tax tree stumpage per household in a tree-rich state, and 55 other similar ubiquitous possibilities].(snickares@hotmail.com)

government sent all of us to the courts to file bankruptcy. I am some times a shame to say I am American Born and proud of my country. But when ever they show the white house I would rather get sick on the side walk then say I am proud to follow anyone that resides in there. Why are we paying for the family's mother in law to live at the white house why does the government paying out so much money for them to fly around the world. They should be here spending their money not to the countries that don't want us in their country, Oh an yes where did the money they found in Iraq that all of a sudden they lost billions why don't they just tell us they was robed not that they didn't know what happen to truck loads of billions of dollars. Bring our loved ones home get out and learn away to put up a net so that they would never get through again to harm our loved ones. I am still hopeful that my husband will find a job but until then I would keep working hard to keep his spirits up and even though he is now 54 soon to be 55 that age don't matter to me and that we will make it through this hole in our life some day someone will get him and will know that they have hard worker on their hands. I take care of my 84 year old father and that is 24/7 and he has stood by me all the way. How can people be taken like these care center's for our elderly $179.00 to 250.00 a day add that up well we all need to open our homes take in a couple of people and take better care of people then they do, I will stay as long as my dad needs me That is what the baby boomers do, I have been sucked into the jobs they have on the computer and talk about scams they take your money an run so be aware of these type of people I have learned my lessen I need to pass this scam I am able to say I was one of those hard up for cash and had put on my blinders never again though so please take care of your own love your family that is going to get you through anything that the government will throw at you. So those of you going through hard times look in the mirror and no that you are loved and that you can make it through this time in your life and  you will make it through this bump in your life.   I am so sorry if I stepped on any toes but I feel that we all need to look at the big picture in our lives and start doing something about the way we are treated here in our country like the illegal's that are here take our jobs and not paying any taxes having baby's free and school free and food stamps and rent paid I think we need to show our government what is the truth that is going on. Our country needs to be put back in order and its the people that are here to do its. Thanks for reading and I hope that this will help out someone our country needs us all to fight for what is ours. May Good Bless You All
