    I heard a report on the radio last week that indicated state by state what the tax laws were. They also mentioned according to some web site that there was a ranking of states from #1 being the worst and #50 being the best, on their livability with tax laws.

    I've done numerous Google searches and can't find a site that has such a ranking of states by how good or bad their taxes are for those who live and work in the given state.

    Anyone know of some sites where I might find this kind of information?

    Thanks

    BTW, they radio people mentioned that Main was number 1, being the worst to live in for the ammount of taxes one had to pay. They said that the Dakodas and Colorado were fairly good for having low taxes???

    Nevada has no state income tax, but a couple of years ago they passed a huge tax package that raised many of the taxes that we do pay. I love the one when you buy a new car, no matter what you pay for the car you pay tax off of MSRP - gotta love these buffoons!

    Still alot better than CA! :D

    No state sales or income taxes in AK. Some localities have them.

    Yooper,

    It's actually "Las", the feminine form. Near, uh, Springfield, AK.

    .oO(good bluff, there's gotta be a Springfield in Arkansas there's a Springfield EVERYWHERE)

    .oo(wait, did I type out that thought?)

    .oO(damn!)

    LOL...

    It looks like the states with the best gun rights and low taxes (isn't it interesting the good gun rights seem to go hand in hand with low/resonable taxes... excluding Vermont... hah) are:

    Alaska (excluding cost of living)
    Arizona
    Colorado (well, sort of on the gun rights part)
    Florida
    Montana (sort of on the income tax part)
    Nevada
    South Dakota
    Texas
    Wyoming

    That's what I heard, too. Ten months of winter and two months of tough sledding. At least that's what they told me up in Bearflanks.

    GOT,

    You missed New Hampshire.
    Low state and local taxes and better gun laws than any of the states you listed. (Except MAYBE Alaska and Vermont).

    You're right, NH does have low taxes. Hmm... how is that NH and ME are so different and yet are neighbors?

    can't believe you guys left out tennessee. no state income tax, very low property taxes, reasonable gun laws, beautiful country. in fact, the only downside is putting up with the $&#*@%) steel guitars


    this topic is of some interest to me, as I have been living in ohio for 7+ years, and decided i was finally fed up with the taxes there, which had gotten ridiculous, to the point, even, that they were driving off jobs (thus the recession for which Taft is responsible, but Bush is paying for)

    anyways, i wanted to move out west, so i could shoot longer ranges, but land is too expensive for what you get out there. i picked TN instead, since it had the best cost of living and taxes

    Tennessee ranks 15 at TaxFoundation.org. Thats still good. Their Sales and Gross Receipts tax is fairly high though. But if property tax is low then thats very good.
