As April comes to a close, so does the worry and stress of tax season that was upon us at the beginning of the month. If you feel the pressure of taxes, more specifically property taxes, have you considered moving? Luckily, where I live, the property taxes aren’t too horrible. (I have friends who live in New York who are paying nearly $15,000 a year in property taxes. To me, that’s insane! Granted, their houses are huge and luxurious…but still!)

If you are considering relocating, make sure you do your research on the states with the lowest property taxes.
