WHAT’S THE BUZZ, TELL ME WHAT’S A HAPPENNIN’
I was in Atlantic City for year-end tax
update classes most of the week (see my review tomorrow) – so I did not keep on top of the tax
BUZZ.Actually I don’t think there was
much BUZZ to keep on top of.Hence this
slim BUZZ installment.
do every year, I’m asking readers to submit via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) the
name of a charity which deserves mention this year for the 12 Days Of Charitable
Giving. Ideally, it would be one that you have supported financially over the
past year or that you plan to support before the year end. In addition to the
charity’s full name, I’ll need the city where the charity is located, what the
charity does, and why you support the charity (a personal story would be
great). Please also link to the website if the organization has one (Facebook
is okay, too): the more information that you can provide, the better.”
No surprise here.New Jersey is once again, like Oliver Twist,
last on the list – or first depending on how you look at it - with the highest average percentage of real estate
tax - 2.29%.Hawaii has the lowest
average tax rate - .28%.The average
rate for my home state of PA is 1.51%.
