EASLEY on mon 14 jan 02


When I read David Hendley talk about his smiling when he tacked on the Texas
6.25% tax, I gasped . What a deal! Where I live, Near Seattle, we get to
donate about 8.9%, give or take, depends on the community in which you live.
Wow! Im moving to Texiss.

Pam,

Washington State also doesn't have a state income tax which most other
states have. You better check the entire tax picture in Texas before you
move.

Dear Pam,

Before you start packing for Texas, 6.25% is our base tax. In Bastrop co=
unty district taxes are added to this making our sales tax a total of 8.2=
5%.

Not only that, they have NO state income tax! But the drawback is you have
to live in Texas :-)

People from lesser states might take offense at such comments. We just
smile. Y'all come visit.

Ed,

Pam most likely knows that she would not have to move as far as Texas to
lower the sales taxes she pays. She could move to Oregon and pay zero
sales tax. She would have to pay Oregon's whopping state income tax
then. But, hey, Potters don't produce that much income anyway, right.
Better still, Pam could move to Vancouver, Washington, just across the
Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. Live in Washington state with no
state income tax and buy everything in Portland and pay no sales tax.
What a deal, eh.
