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. :-)
Never (taxes). At least not in my lifetime. Remember "the pledge"?
The seat belt laws might be inevitable due to the driving habits of our southern neighbors.
Property taxes and everything in general costs more in the Northeast corridor, but NH doesn't have alot of the costs that other states in our vicinity have.
I lived in the Dirty South for 5 years and you can have it.
