A friend wants me to move (back) to Maryland. Told her I can’t as it would cost me at least 10% of my yearly income just to pay Maryland taxes.

Its really tough on the retired who are not rich nor poor enough to get breaks.

Property taxes are typically $5K to 10K per year for a typical middle class house which goes for about $400-500K.
At least NYC gives those over 65 a property tax break for the obvious reason that they dont normally have kids in the public schools cost $$$, but here it doesnt matter to them.

More people here=higher taxes for us the past 10 years or so.
