Hey, enjoy that sales and income tax in any one of 49 or 48 other states that you move to, respectively. The reason all the Massholes are moving here is because our property taxes are still less than theirs on average, plus we don't have the other taxes that I mentioned.
Yeah, the vehicle registration costs suck, but that's the price you pay for being the only state where you aren't required to purchase car insurance or wear a seatbelt. I'll make that up in a week with all the money that I don't have to spend at cash registers via the sales tax.
Plus, I paid more in Georgia for it when I lived there.
If only you were a freestater or a commuter...
My annual property tax on my home in Tennessee was about $560.
My property tax on a similar home here in NH would be roughly $3800. Although there is a sales tax in TN, there is no income tax. It cost me $24 to register my car for a year in Tennessee; $500 here in NH, where they just raised inspection "fees" to $43...no inspection in TN. Roughly $175 to heat my home over a TN winter, nearly $1200 to heat my dwelling in NH.
With Democrats making serious inroads into NH (the M*ssholes you reference), seat belt laws and higher taxes are coming...hang in there. :-)
