If one is in a high tax state, (we have a 9.3% state income tax), is it correct that one is better off with 6 month T-bills at present, since they are not subject to state tax? I ran the calculation and it appears to be the case. Am I missing something?I didn't run a calculation, but that's probably correct. In a high tax state, it will take a major anomoly, under present overall conditions, for you to get a CD that beats T-bills.When Treasuries were very low, a couple of years ago, it was pretty easy to find 5-year CDs that beat 5-year Treasuries and TIPS, even after high state taxes. I'm not sure about short term choices. But, anyway, things have leveled off.
