Correct me if I am wrong. If your gross salary is $100,000 you will pay 28% income tax. When you buy things there is sales tax of 7%? Are any items exempt from sales tax? Are there other taxes?

How much does it cost to fill up your car and how many miles can you drive?

Where do most people in Atlanta go to do the grocery shopping? Are there many organic food stores around?

What is the typical cost to see a movie or go to Imax?

You're wrong. Both the federal and GA income taxes are so-called progressive taxes, which means the marginal rate increases as your income increases. There are also deductions, credits, and exemptions that apply depending on your situation.

The state levies a 4% sales tax and each county has one or more local option sales taxes. My county, Cobb County, only adds 2% for a 6% total. Others add more for 7% or 8%.

Depends on your car's tank size and how many mpg it will get. Regular fuel is around $2.40/gal. My car takes premium and I just got it for $2.69/gal.

Depends. We do all of ours at Kroger and/or Publix. No idea about organic, although there are Trader Joe stores in the area.

The IMAX in Kennsaw is $12/person.

Regarding Orangic: Whole Foods and Decalb Farmers Market are good choices.

On Taxes it will vary greatly depending on how much you spend etc.

It might help if we knew the basis of the question. Are you thinking of moving here?
