Third highest in taxes in the nation Posted On: 6/13/2008 10:01:39 AM
We live in Northern Wisconsin in a city an hour from lake Superior called Minocqua. On a warm sunny day it is beautiful, but long cold,gray,snowy winters as we age. Moved up here from Illinois and did not realize the amount of taxes they would levy on just about everything! On retirement income, social security, gas, food, etc. We do have to say that property taxes are not any different than we had in IL., but the cost of living up here is hard if you want to retire and no longer work, so know that you may have to work part time at least, and that if you want to live lakeside, the homes will be expensive, even cabins or fixers. We were unaware and did not do our homework and so have now after 6yrs put our house on the market and hope to sell and move to a more tax friendly state and a warmer climate.
