I am lliving in Texas and I am glad that they don't have state tax, it saves allot in the long run more money in our checks and better returns. I wish that Iowa would follow suit, that state is already suffering enough, raising local taxes and stuff...wow.

Well, I'm glad that Iowa doesn't have the high crime, high pollution, and low education levels of Texas. To each their own.

Dont forget we have the HIGHEST corporate tax brackets in the nation. And as the legislature wraps up the 2009 sesssion this weeke they are talking sex offenders and eliminating our federal deductability. It confuses me why they never address this. This state is brain dead when it comes to attracting new business. I don't think half the people here could run a lemonade stand.

At least you Texans get it I wouldn't want to LIVE in texas though

Yeah we do get it that is why we would make it as a seprate country too, however I wouldn't be for that...ft worth is a very popular place to live, low crime ect...low costs for house compaired to other places.

I would live in Iowa before I would ever consider Texas. The main reason is the heat. I can not deal with it along with the scorching sun. Triple digits for long periods of time along with humidity are not appealing in the least.

Me personally would rather take 2 months of extreme heat rather than 4-5 months of a cold gloomy winter

Complaining abut state tax in Iowa? Oh Please! When I left the Midwest, it was either Texas or Nevada. Yes, no state income tax in Texas but those property taxes will eat you alive! And sales taxes on groceries! I chose Nevada, no state income tax either, but my friend pays $5000 a year in property taxes in Texas for a house appraised at $250k or more, and I pay $600 a year for a house appraised at $175k and no sales tax on my groceries. Yes, housing prices are always going to be cheaper in Texas, which is what lures so many people down there, but watch their reaction to their first property tax bill!

As my friend says about Texas: Everything is BIG in Texas including taxes!
