Im going to repeat what a member of this site posted on on a topic.He hit the nail on the head.This thread im going to send to govenor benedict arnold (35% approval rating) & every scum coward politician in sacramento (ca legislature/11% approval rating).

This tread will be on the msn & google search engine.Were in a damn recession here & these bastards raise our state,income & car taxes & will do it again most likely next yr.What a bunch of low life loser.I DESPISE most politicians!!!!

**"California is the most over-taxed,over-lawed,over-regulated,nanny-governed state in the union with the worse legislature".
"Dont you know we that "we the people"are too dumb to make our own decisions so the legislature has to do it for us given that the people keep re-electing them".This is a irrefutable fact.

Not true. New Jersey and New York are worse.
New Jersey actually taxes people who want to move out of the state.

Texas is known as "Taxes" by folks in Texas and here in New Mexico. No income tax, but the property taxes have driven many back to Cali or to Anthony, NM where they keep their Texas identity.

Evidently you are new to California. If you think the priorities are backward then you know your opinion is a distinct minority. Stimulus $ should help the economy; hopefully soon. But cutting state services or raising taxes is the choice & the legislature & governor will not cut vital services. Democrats control California & that will not change in our life time.

California is 45th when you look at property tax as a percentage of the home's value. Only .48% which is a lot lower than Texas, which taxes 1.82% of the home's value.

We have looked into other states and we would pay more in each of them than we do here in CA. Even the states with no state income tax they really nail you on property tax. When I retire in a couple years we are selling and moving up north but still in CA.

I believe local & county taxes make it even more expensive in California [ie. Montebello] but clearly it is not much better outside the state.

Sounds to me that you aren't suffering too bad right now we need to do whatever we can to get out of the depression. TV crews interviewed people at random in shopping centers who all said it was not an issue. If one can afford a $300 purchase than the extra $30 isn't going to be a problem.

You might want to check before you move. If you have lived in your house for many years you are going to pay more prop taxes if you move. You can keep your same prop taxes if you move within your existing county. I live in Northern Ca in a small town outside of Chico. Our house is 2200 square feet and our prop taxes are $5,000.00. We have researced Texas and we can get a comparable home with more property and pay less property taxes and no income tax and $60.00 flat fee for car registration no matter what kind of car.
