I didn't really mean to start a debate on the merits (or lack thereof) of having no income tax with a high sales tax. I'm still wondering about the impact such a situation could have upon various types of IRAs (whether or not the high sales tax is a good idea). But just to clear up a bit of confusion people might be having, based on the fact that edcosoft posted:"I THINK the percentage to break even with the personal 1040 tax is about 12%, not 25%--not so bad, but that's on top of Soc Sec and State Sales Tax."I believe the 25% sales tax figure from the article was taking the sales tax which already exists into account. I could be wrong though. Anybody have the Feb, March, or April Washingtonian magazine on hand? (I'm not sure which one it was in, sorry).
