Hilarious! You guys aren't even really being taxed at all! Here in the UK VAT is 20% and that's after hefty Income Tax, National Insurance and Capital Gains Tax (to name a few). Not that it really bothers me, in fact I'd happily pay more if it really meant better infrastructure and services.Unfortunately, it seems that they still get their pound of flesh on every purchase:
The minimum combined 2020 sales tax rate for Ava, Missouri is 8.23%. This is the total of state, county and city sales tax rates. The Missouri sales tax rate is currently 4.23%. The County sales tax rate is 2%.
Well, at least you don't have to open the window every few miles to throw money out like we do here in NJ.
