Thank goodness you got out of there when the getting was good!Wow! 9k! I have a nice house in a good area and pay $3K each year. No state taxes, either...TennesseeIn 2014, New York “partnered” with Soraa, a California light-bulb company, to build a $90 million factory outside Syracuse. Soraa promised to bring more than 400 jobs to the region and agreed to rent the facility for $1 annually. Just as the finishing touches were put on the plant, Soraa pulled out of the deal, leaving New York’s taxpayers with an empty light-bulb factory.Speaking the truth always hurts the Progressive Marxist Socialist/DSA Democrats.

Personally I was able to sell my home and 50 acres and move to North Carolina in 2019. The State, County and Local school taxes were extremely high. I no longer have to pay nearly $9,000 in taxes each year.
That is why I sold out and moved to N.C.... Downsizing was a little difficult....
