Props2u,

I thought New Yorkers were taxed more. Long Island had very high property taxes. Most of this was the individual taxes by individual school districts and other overlapping governmental agencies (big problem in Nassau County where I live; not sure of Suffolk).

How on earth did you pick Utah? eek I'm sure it's lovely (I've never been), but it seems such an odd choice.

As a (former) NYer it certainly felt like we were the highest taxed in the nation. The Tax Foundation website ( http://www.taxfoundation.org/ ) has some interesting data. I don't know what their rep is, but it seems pretty straightforward.

I live and work in Northampton which is in a central part of England. So central infact its in an area called the Midlands laugh

I'm about 1 hours drive from London, Birmingham and Leicester and 2 hours from Liverpool and Manchester. One day I hope to live in Southern Ireland where my father is from. I think there are laws in Ireland against doing anything with any sense of urgency. laugh
