    Knock on Florida, but it is a great state to start a business.
    Good article Darren, keep it up.

      Funny you should post this. State of Illinois recently passed a 67% increase in taxes. personal income tax rate from 3 per cent to 5 per cent and a rise in business income taxes from 7.3 per cent to 9.5 per cent. Add insult to injury: ‘Illinois passed a bill requiring all Internet retailers with sales over $10,000 to start collecting a 6.25% tax from Illinois residents who make a purchase on the Internet’

      Then we have our local Government messing with taxes too. I am not all all pleased with this state. @Chris, I am originally from Miami.

      I’m not far from the Wisconsin border…at anyrate, thanks for the links and resources Darren!

        You are welcome Shawn. I just watched a report a few weeks ago on how bad financially most states are, and your tax increases are going to be the tip of the iceberg I am afraid.
