  1. Even though New Hampshire has one of the highest property taxes, doesn't it have one of the lowest overall tax burdens?

    I guess it depends on whether you have a lot of high value property what your overall taxes are, but their income tax is really low as I understand it.

    1. No income tax on wages or sales tax in NH.

      The people of NH are more able to account for how much money is being stolen from them.

  2. Texas, my home state, is often touted for having no state income tax. As you see, leviathan always finds a way.
