So I'm supposed to be moving to Kansas next month but noticed their tax rate is through the roof!! The personal property tax on my one car is over $500 (and that doesn't include registration) My truck is $24 (but again, that doesn't include rgistration or sales tax) Would i have to pay sales tax too if i didn't buy my vehicles in Kansas? And then a couple houses I was looking at to possibly buy, the taxes were over $4,500 for the year!!!! That is over $300 a month just in taxes alone!!
And then I stopped at WalMart in Junction City to buy a couple things and saw the sales tax rate was like 9%!!! Really???? 9 friggen percent sales tax?? Then on top of that I guess food AND clothing is taxed too!!
What the hell is wrong with the legislators and elected morons in that State that have allowed the tax rate to go so high?? And to levy such a high tax rate on the three basic necessities: Food, Shelter, and Clothing!??!?
What am I getting for my tax dollars other than getting screwed? It's a pay raise for me to move there, but the tax rate is going to eat up much of that, if not all of it! Then to rent a place, you gotta spend $1,500 or more to find a place that isn't a dump!!
Wow!! Now I'm not so sure I want to relocate to Kansas. You guys are getting ripped off, F'd dry, without even so much as a kiss!!

Appealing isn't it? Sales tax is actually 9.55%, unless you;re shopping at Goody's then it's like 12 percent (I don't remember for sure, I refuse to shop there).

If Governer Brownback gets his way and reduces income tax to nothing our personal property tax wil triple just like it did in Texas.

You think it's bad here? Move your ass to California or the east coast and see what the tax rates there are.

Welcome to Kansas. The hate state with the mostest....taxes that is. You have to pay for the privilege to live here buddy. Not that there are any real benefits to paying those taxes; schools (crap unless your a performing football jock), inner-city roads (dangerous), Public Services (slow to medium non-existant). Home building inspections (lol, right).
Money goes to schools and roads, and our students graduate with about a 4th grade education.
But, please come, we need more people to pay taxes, I think our legislators need a raise again.
