I've talked to a banker recently and found out that in some states people don't have to pay any income tax whatsoever. If I remember correctly those states include Florida, Washington, Nevada and a few others. Let's face it - paying 25% of your salary on top of other expenses like student loans, mortgages and bills is not much fun and not much money is left (we are not making millions here, right?). On the other hand, those states without income tax have other ways to compensate the difference, like high property tax and high taxes on regular purchases. I wanted to ask the nurses who live in those states without income tax if you feel like your gross income can fully compensate for higher living expenses?
Any other opinions?
