Montana's low tax burden

We are constantly hearing that Montana has a high tax burden and we do have a neighbor that ranks third in the amount of taxes paid per thousand, as reported several days ago. Here's where Montana stands in the report of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation report based on 2002 (the same as the one that ranks Wyoming third): Our income taxes rank us 27th dollar amount per $1000; our "sales and excise" taxes rank us 46th and the total is 28th per dollars per thousand. A lot of states seem to have a higher tax rate than we do. And another report shows that Billings ranks way down among the largest cities of any state in amount of property taxes, in the lower third. Cheyenne is the lowest of the largest cities in all states.

Found a lot of useful info on your site about tax preparation - thank you. Haven't finished reading it yet but have bookmarked it so I don't lose it. I've just started a tax preparation blog myself if you'd like to stop by

This is a really nice blog, I have been coming to it for a while and find it to be very insightful. I hope it will be kept up and additional commentary added to it soon.

I'd like to share with the other bloggers here another nice site I came across recently, it is very extensive and has a lot of great ideas and great savings on contact lenses You can check the site out here www.nwcmarketing.com

I hope you find it as useful as I have and I would be interested in hearing any of your comments about it.
