You can read about Canadian income tax rates here:High income earners (generally over about $132,000) play 29% to federal government and 10% (Alberta) or more to the province. So the overall income tax rate varies from 39% (Alberta) to 50% (Nova Scotia).In the U.S. a married couple pays 25% federal on taxable income over $70,700 and 28% over $142,700. In Oregon, state tax is 9% of everything over $15,500 for a couple. Total income tax would be 34% up to $142,700, then 37% above that.In California, state tax is 9.3% of everything over $97,884 if filing jointly. Total would be 34.3% up to $142,700, then 37.3% above that.In NYC the combined city and state tax is 9.984% over $45,000 if filing jointly. It goes up to 10.04% over $90,000. Totals would be about 35% and 38%. All of the above numbers are much worse for single taxpayers. And you lose deductions and exemptions as your income gets higher, which pushes more of your income into the higher bracket. And you pay 1.45% Medicare tax on all salary and business income.So personal income taxes are not terribly different in some places and California's and NY's most populous counties have sales taxes north of 8%. --fleg
