I can't speak for property taxes in Georgia, generally I've found them to be lower; but, Plano has HIGH property taxes for example our house was about $200K and we paid $6500 a year approximately. However, in our experience it is offset by having no state income tax. I LOVE Plano and we are moving back there (well Collin County I can't be sure Plano yet) soon.

ETA: What type of employment? I know that the IT market is hot in DFW and I've seen signs everywhere in the 10+ years I lived in the Plano area for help at stores and what not.

I live near Cartersville and do all my shopping and errands there. I like it a lot, tons of stores but still a small town feel with a quaint main street and town square.

Taxes - I pay about $2200 a year on a $235k house.

Employment is tough. There are a few plants here and the steel mill has a good starting salary for production work. Other than that, openings are hard to come by. There are tons of service jobs as there are a lot of retail stores. There are jobs here, they just don't pay very well. I commute to Atlanta for my job.
