I guess if you compare it to Alabama it is, but not to the states where most of the country lives.
We certainly do agree, however, on the 'outrageously high tax states'.
Not necessarily, I guess. Son pays more in Northeast Florida than I pay in Baltimore County MD. Definitely NOT Alabama, LOL.

I live in Delaware and Turbo Tax charged me $19.95 to efile my DE tax return. I think it's a bit ridiculous but at least I'm sure it got there and was accepted. I no longer trust the PO with things I know need to be there by a certain date. I was returning an EZ Pass transponder to Harrisburg, PA by Priority Mail and it took 6 days to deliver it. From Dover to there is about a 4 hour drive. Explain that to me.

I also do a PA return as DH still works there part time, but PA is so simple that I do it by entering the numbers into their online file system which is free. I refuse to pay for TT to do it as it is way too easy.

Yes, the PO has gotten bad here too. It takes as long, 3 days is becoming the norm, to get to my house once it hits the metro area as it did to travel 1/2 way across the country and I'm 1 mile from the Mpls city limits. Slow as he$$.
