Folks often say that everything is bigger in New York – and that includes your yearly tax bill. With an annual rate of $9,718 per resident, New York currently holds the #1 spot for high tax rates in America.

Luckily, folks who call New York home always have plenty of fun things to do. The state houses numerous museums, sporting facilities, and national monuments. Visitors from around the world come to see the Statue of Liberty, and several movies and TV shows have been shot in the Big Apple. You can also catch a Broadway play, stroll through Times Square, or shop ’til you drop with your loved ones.
