The average RE tax in your county is 6.3X that in mine (Maricopa County, AZ). No wonder you have made many angry posts about what you pay for school taxes there, while I am OK with our taxes.

Well, perhaps the education system and public services are superior to where I am, hence cost more? Just wondering...

None of you are real. Except Sarah, I've met her. Otherwise, just random electrons.

As much as I like maps, I don't like this one - the shading of Illinois bothers me. I need to move into a van down by the river. I used to joke that had I known years ago that I would pay more than $125,000 by now in taxes to the school district that I grew up in, I would have gotten my moneys worth of fun while I was in school. Its not a joke anymore

We've decided to close this thread after removing several derogatory posts which were bound to offend some folks living in some of those States.
