I don't pay state income tax in Nevada, that's true. But my $32,000 pickup I bought last year cost me over $500 to register. And sales tax in Clark County is 8.1% You get screwed by the man one way or the other.
What did we all notice about the majority of the states that are best to live in for taxes? Mostly RED states. Not Washington of course, it is just an extension of Califoreignya, and not sure how it made the list...since taxes here get higher every time the legislature meets!
Bottom line, the states with low taxes, are the ones that spend their money wisely. That pretty much leaves out places like Califoreignya, Michigan, New York, New Jersey...etc!
All states need a certain amount of money to operate, determined by the people and what they
want for services and how many freeloaders they want to support.
This article is very shallow in the information that is given, with no explanation why some of the states do have lower taxes. Wyoming, for example, is lucky to have lower personal taxes due to the fact that the state collects mineral royalties from the oil and gas industries which added into the state coffers helps keep the operating expenses lower for the individual. Other states with low taxes have a similar or same outside income. The amount of greed of legislators and the people determine how much your taxes will be.
There's no such thing as "outmigration". Try emigration - moving from place to place within a country. Or immigration - moving from country to country.
Don't they teach this stuff in schools any more?
