    We have 4.1% income tax, and everything is taxed including retirement income.

    Values do not change more than inflation- 2.3% next year.

    6% sales tax on everything except food.
    James,

    Thanks for breaking the ice ! No pun intended, since you live in MI...

    Man...$2K tax on a $40K house....ouch !!!

    We also have a cap on the rise in home "value", although I'm not sure exactly how it works. My assessed value went up ~ 6.2%, but they deducted a sum to bring it down to ~ 4.7%

    I'm just glad to see property values going up here...we're not underwater on our place, because we put enough down when we bought it. However, we also made a lot of improvements (built a pool, etc)...it's just now getting back up to our purchase price in 2009...we went into the improvements, knowing we'd never recoup their costs, but it's nice to see the "value" of the house (and our equity) rising again.

    I didn't want to even try and get in the whole "cost of living" thing, but this article did it for us !!!

    The maps DO generalize, though...it's no doubt a State-wide average....not broken down into smaller sub-sets. I'm sure every State has the same issue...in MD, it was more expensive to live near DC than it was on the Eastern Shore, or Western MD....I'm sure it's the same deal in VA...

    Where I live in FL, we're known as "Lower Alabama" or the "Redneck Riviera", so our cost of living is probably less than say, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, or Miami, etc... Thus, I'll bet our numbers are more like those of our neighbor States, AL, MS, and GA...

    $127 per year, payable in two biannual installments of 63 and some change. for a 2 bedroom ranch style house in town. we don't have much in the way of services though. if someone you don't want to let in comes to the door you just shoot them yourself and get the shovel out of the shed. it's a little more work that way, but it cuts way down on the law enforcement and ambulance levies. plus hardly nobody comes knocking on the door without calling first.

    oh, and no sales tax either. we don't buy much, mostly just make our own. and clothing is optional too.

    OK, Burro...I get a laugh, along with the next Guy, from your posts ! OTOH, if you don't want to play for real in this particular thread, then just mark your posts as "satire"' and move along...I, on the other hand, appreciate what I think is true input from those who have responded so far here...just sayin'...

    AL We live out in the county.
    Prop. Tax is 780.00
    Appraised value is 290,000
    Sales tax in closest town 9.75%
    No state income tax on retirement income including military, civil service, and social security. Reg. SIT rate is 5%
    While getting our pistol permits we asked sheriff what the response time was to our house. His response was " Can you shoot? If so, it don't really matter now does it".
