Forbes just did a ranking of all 50 states for taxes. Worst was New York at around 12%. Far far better is good old New Hampshire at Number 7 with an 8% tax rate. We are the best in New England by a lot. Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine are all far worse.
If we could just pass right to work up here we could even attract some industry, like that Toyota plant that is out looking for a location.
