I think pekinrobin lives in Louisiana. Real estate there is cheap and they have a relatively large homestead exemption. I'm pretty sure that you'd pay little or no taxes on a $50,000 home.

Of course, the gov't has to get money from somewhere. Louisiana has an income tax and in New Orleans the sales tax is more than 10% on some items.

Are there places where they have no property tax that are next door to a state that has no sales tax? That would be a good place to call home.
