Since my wife is a Canuck it would be easy for us to slip across the border to retire, at least in terms of being permitted to live there. So I did some research into B.C. taxes a while ago. If I recall, one reaches some outrageous bracket like 54% when income surpasses only about $35,000 USD. Plus 15% sales tax. But I couldn't find out anything about deductions, how capital gains are treated, etc. Can somebody supply me, or point me to, this information?

Comparing 54% above $35K to Washington State's 28% (federal tax only) and 8% sales tax makes Washington a no brainer if you want to be in the Pacific Northwest unless there's something I'm missing.

Thank you.
