i'm originally from the vampire state but fled to Arizona 15 yrs ago knowing what i was in for if i stayed there. Outrageous home prices Insane property taxes Too many firearm regs My sister pays about 14,000 a year in property taxes ( baldwin LI) and a good friend pays 16,000 in mahopac. I almost passed out when i heard this...... Give us your bad news and vent a bit! Wonder how much Howard forks over every year! He often comments on the insane taxes he pays.
