As I implied, such a seemingly simple concept is really subject to a lot of interpretation by definition.

You may have noticed that I said "income-based" taxes, which is why I would not include sales and property taxes, nor the income-based Medicare surcharge,

so complicated as to be essentially meaningless?

going back to OP, would have to know how he computed it to know possible ways to lower it? (eg, if state income included--move to Florida)
