Much of Alaska has no property tax, mainly those parts of the state that lie outside of burroughs (think: much of the Interior). In fact, it wasn't long ago that some members of the state legislature pressed to have this addressed this in some way, as it wasn't considered fair to the those who live in burroughs.Ã‚Â :'(
Alaska also lacks a state sales or income tax, so, those living outside of established burroughs probably pay the lowest possible taxes in the United States of America.Ã‚Â
I live in Alaska so I can say, that a majority of property is subject to property tax. You can't own land in the Federal parks, which make up alot of the land in Alaska. While you -could- live somewhere where there is no property tax, unless you have a airplane, boat, or atv, you aren't going to be able to get it.
It is true that we have no sales tax or income tax. I live in Anchorage, the most populated city in the state and the average tax rate is about 16 percent.
It is my opinion that most people don't want to live in the middle of know where to simply escape sales tax. I personally wouldn't mind being in the middle of know where, but thats my lifestyle choice. That being said Alaska after 24 years is too cold. Now, NH may be only slightly warmer, but it already has liberty minded folks in it, whereas this state doesn't.
Recently the state government wants to make DNA collection part of the booking process when you are arrested. And its -supposed- to be destroyed if the charges are dropped/dismissed. If your a felon then it stays in the system forever. No state is perfect, but New Hampshire is by far the best state based on what I've learned.
