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.
I'm living there - property tax isn't ZERO, but you'd pay about $370 a YEAR on a $150,000 house. Once the house is paid for, you could afford that being a greeter at Wal-Mart... 8->
I belive my brother, in Michigan, pays, literally TEN TIMES the property tax that I do. Add a zero....
My weathers' nicer, too....
I don't think there's such a thing as no sales tax...do you mean State tax? It's high here, but I'm 30 minutes from the border where it's much lower.
My state: Alabama, north end.
Neighboring state with no state income taxes: Tennessee
(Live here...work there....)
(Yeah, we keep up the red-neck-dueling-banjos image just to keep the population sparse... 8-> Truth is I'm surrounded by geeks and NASA engineers....)
