  • oh wow...Castle Rock CO 7.9% and food is taxed here as well at 4%. But if you think about it your $1 gets taxed to crap. First you pay taxes before you even see your paycheck. THEN (if you work in a dumb city I wont mention any names *DENVER*) you pay a stupid tax they call "Denver tax" (WTH?). THEN you pay a tax on every dollar you spend. THEN the money you spend gets taxed again from the business. I did the math on it once and I only bring home about 60 cents on a dollar!
