  • Hmmm... Wow.... wouldn't that be a great change of pace... In Ohio they would never give up the opportunity to stick us with our 7.75% sales tax... I've actually heard that there are places you can live where they don't charge Local Income Tax or State Income Tax. I've come to the conclusion that in Ohio we are the highest taxed state in the nation.... cRaZY...
