Ok, let me tell you about Nevada, since I live here.
There is not state income tax, but there is a state business license fees of around $300.00 a year if you own a business, that doesn't include the city business license fee. There are employer taxes that have been implemented in the last 5 years that replaces the state income tax.
The sales tax depends on where you live, Carson City 7.475% and looking at raising it, Las Vegas 8.1%, Minden/Gardnerville 701% etc. There is not a county in Nevada that is under 6.85% sale tax and none of them are looking to lower the sales tax. This writer doesn't know a thing about Nevada.
This is how the property tax is determined in Nevada. Take the $207,600. X 35% X 3.65= $2,652.09
The amount of the property times the % rate times the rate that is determined by the state and county where you live equals the amount of property tax that you will pay. It is no where near $1,749.00 a year, you can double it and will be a safer amount to rely on. Your property taxes go up every year here and if your neighbor sells their home for a lot more that the $207,600 your are reassessed at that amount, not what your home was purchased for.
Also, people over 65 are not given a break on their taxes, they pay the full amount there and it doesn't matter about their income either. Nevada uses fuzzy math to do their property taxes
I would suggest you look for another state to move to, that is what we are doing now that we are retirement age.l
