I worry the gov figure out a way to get even more tax money out of me if they change to another tax method.
LA has the some of the lowest Property taxes in America. Florida's property tax isn't insane, it's in Average range, which is a good deal if you consider: No state income tax, VERY REASONABLE 6% sales tax (7.5% in certain counties) which excludes perishable food items (huge deal).
I recently did a cost of living comparison between where I live, VA BEACH, and where my family lives, Bradenton, Fl. I was shocked to find out my cost of living would be a whopping 25-27% lower in Bradenton.
