I assume Tennessee taxes real eastae at the local level to support local schools and fire/police depts. I also must assume Tennessee has a higher than normal sales tax if that is their only source of revenue for the state agencies.

I am currently trying to sell my home in New York which has one of the highest tax rates in the nation...it takes a lot of loose cash to run our corrupt state government...just watch the news to see elected officials being hauled into court on charges of pocketing hundreds of thousands of taxpayers dollars to augment the bribes they take to deal out contracts on the taxpayer's dime.
Honest politicians in New York are rare indeed.

My target states are either North or South Carolina once I sell my New York home.

Property tax is the realm of local county/city governments not state government and is very reasonable. A $100K value assessed residential home in Nashville/Davidson county has property taxes that are a touch less than $1,000/year. It is certainly cheaper in the outlying counties including Williamson County Tennessee which is included the Forbes Magazine listing of Top 25 Richest counties in the USA.

The state certainly has other taxes on business, corporations, vehicle license plates & registration (tax), gasoline tax for roads, Federal government for handouts and other avenues of revenue as do many other states.

Point is our retail economy is based upon commerce and the transaction of business. You buy something you pay sales tax. Don't want to pay sales tax? That's fine don't buy anything! You do have a choice!

Why would you want a tax system based upon income?

Income for most folks for the last 10 years has been flat or going down based upon all the news reporting. Those folks still find a way to BUY things and pay sales tax. The credit card companies say that total national credit card debt in the USA amounts to $15K for every person in the USA. Why would anyone have credit card debt? Simple. They spend "Mo Money" than they make therefore they have credit card debt.

With the AVERAGE family of 4 income in Tennessee at about $45k that means the average family with $15K worth of credit card debt has SPENT 30+% "Mo Money" than they make and the State of Tennessee benefits from their poor money management by collecting sales tax on the additional 30% of spending that they would not collect with an income tax.

I am not trying to convince anyone of anything just to illustrate how successful the taxation of sales versus income is for the State of Tennessee and the operation of our state government. We ain't broke like a LOT of states in the good ole USA!

Tennessee along with several other southern states made Kiplinger's top ten states for taxes. If you get a chance a quick study of this reports and the ten worst states for taxes according to Kiplinger's is well worth the time.
One fact is clear....northeast states tax everyone to death and beyond!!
Southern states seem to balance taxes with either no state income tax or very low rates if they do tax residents.
Kiplinger's has a regular email newsletter that is free and worth subscribing to.

Note: The government wants all your money...they just have not figured out how to take it yet without revolution by the poor taxpayers.
You the taxpayer pay for every government hand out and program...only problem is sooner or later the politicians run out of other people's money...then they print money...that is called the national debt...the higher it goes the less the paper money they print is worth....think about it.

My situation is a little different though. I do not really have a home state and haven't for years.

I don't mention online often, is that I travel as a nurse because I work as an Active Duty nurse. This is also why my nursing license doesn't need to be in the state that I am working in but just needs to be in 'a' state. I hold two RN licenses in states that I no longer have any ties to at all. One I will let expire and the other is the state where I first got licensed in, so I will keep that.

This. Some states get by with less, some take more. Some streamline/limit services, some are involved in everything. Since government is not efficient, the more they do, the more you pay. Want $1 in services, send them $1.50. Some states have extremely generous pensions for state employees (think CA for example). Tax payers have to pony up for these expenses unless you are in IL.

Some states are blessed with abundant natural resources that pay a lot of bills (think oil in AK). Most of the voting public want generous state services but do not want to pay for them.

If you have the flexibility to choose your state of residency, the savings can be huge.
