You are the one who cannot think. To take a somewhat typical example. In idaho, a married couple who earns a (pitiful) 21,000 pays about 5.1% of that in state income taxes that is about 1070 dollars. The state sales tax is 6%(higher in some cities). If we assume that the couple spends. 18,000 of that money they would pay 1080 in sales taxes.<quoted text>
I didn't see "income tax" I believe he was speaking of our sales tax rate. If you were capable of thinking that might have dawned on you.
So the couple pays state taxes of 2150 dollars. Those in Tennessee will pay 1800 in sales tax and no income tax.
So where would you prefer to live if taxation were the only issue?
