I went to Las Vegas last year for an interview. The offer would have given me a 30% pay increase.

I asked the realtor showing me around why she was driving an 8 year old vehicle, she told me what the annual license fees were. 10X what I pay for a car half the age.

After looking into the other non-tax "taxes", I decided to stay in TX. To live there, at the same lifestyle I enjoy now, I would have needed a 100% pay increase.

It is sad to see that we have lost the opportunities to look elsewhere for greener pastures as you describe.

Almost every state is tied in up in a bureacratic, gordian knot-like, never ending spiral of higher costs for diminished or questionable services with no apparent way to stem the tide of socialism and its associated social engineering.

It is a govt apparatik that a few seize as much power and control as possible and retain power and build on this shaky foundation with more spending for programs that serve no public good , but only feather the nests of those who would seek total control over commerce and public institutions.

The licensing fees in NV aren't high; I know some who tell me it costs just $300 a year to register their Mercedes E Class.
