I think when all is said and done, for the same quality of life, overall taxes are similar but collected in different ways. If your property tax is only 6200, then there is a tax on the car for maybe 500-600 per year, and it declines every year. You may or may not have a good school system. You may have a high sales tax. You may have a high local income tax. Or you could live in metro NY and have high everything. Some would argue you get what you pay for.

Is it anything to brag about if you have low taxes? A coworker used to live in DE and his property tax on a 5-bed/3.5 bath was around $1000, and they have no sales tax, but a decent income tax. And every corp in America is inc. there. Is it any wonder his kids can't read? If you want to have an education system, there has to be taxes collected to pay for it.
