I have been trying to find out what this is exactly. Reading through the Arizona tax manual can make your brain hurt, and like usual legal text, it doesn't really say anything that is understandable.

Besides cars and mobile homes, what does a typical person/family pay taxes on in this case and how much would you expect to pay?

So basically, Arizona doesn't have any different taxes than here in Illinois. We have property tax, (called real estate tax) sales tax, estate tax, vehicle tax, state income tax, etc.

I thought someone here has mentioned a "Personal Property Tax" which I took as a tax on personal items owned other than real estate, (your house/lot) car or state income tax.

I've been reading a lot of these things and it looks like they do not pertain to other than buseinesses or some specific things.

The reason I asked was that i have not been able to find anything that shows a personal property tax on things owned by people, other than vehicles, mobile homes, trailers)

Businesses, farms, etc. pay personal property taxes on equipment. The average person who does not own a business is affected only by taxes on cars. motor homes, trailers. As the link above indicates, Arizona does not have personal property tax on household goods or intangible personal property.

Interesting question, Sick.

Having resided in a number of states all over this country, I am convinced the "tax burden" is about equal except for a few known states such as California. Some states have no income tax while others have no personal property tax. Some have higher sales tax while others have low property taxes.

Bottom line . . . they'll get you one way or the other and unless you're a bazillionaire, one particular tax is not a valid factor for determining the best state to reside.

MY TWO CENTS WORTH.
