No income tax or sales tax.

QUOTE
1. Alaska
Alaska has no state sales tax. Average local sales tax rate: 1.77%
Income tax: None
Sales tax: None
Property tax per capita: $1,559
Inheritance tax: None
Estate tax: None

Alaska gets significant income from corporate taxes, mostly from the oil-and-gas industry. The state collects high revenue per person -- $7,145 in 2009, according to the Tax Foundation -- without collecting income, state sales tax or inheritance tax. Its local sales tax rate is 1.77 percent. Local investors don't pay state tax on capital gains because there is no income tax. However, at $1,559 per person, property taxes are relatively high.

You really get what you pay for, though.

Yeah, in the neighborhood of $1200 or so if I'm not mistaken.

I'd move to Alaska for the right opportunity. Cold/snow don't bother me tremendously, and I love the thought of never having to stay up past 10pm to watch Sox games!

It would have to be Anchorage, though. I still need to have some sort of city nearby.

It's #1 with unemployed alcoholics. Not hating on the state, Alaska in summer is about as close to perfect as I can think of. But it is a tough life in some respects.

The cost of living is very high. I was stationed there when I was in the Coast Guard. We got a nice cost of living allowance because of the high prices for groceries, gas, etc.

That being said, I'd go back in a heartbeat. It's an outdoors lover's dream.

I would love to spend a significant amout of time in Alaska, but my wife who is literally allergic to cold (no bull her body generates an inflammatory response similar to an immune response with prolonged exposure to cold air or water) would never go for it.

My Godfather lives in Alaska and I'd move there on the drop of a dime if I could. I really am not a fan of big cities, and having infinite fishing and hunting possibilities would be a dream come true. I was there in April, which is a cruddy time of the year, and I still fell in love with that state.

Buffalo 34
Pittsburgh 37
Anchorage 53

My ex was the opposite, she could not handle the heat. Best thing I ever did was moving to South Texas (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lolhitting.gif)
