Looking for a nice place to move to with low government interference and taxes? Here's a post complete with an interactive map that shows you how your current home state stacks up against all the others.

Spoiler: New York and California are good places to be from. Far from.

Minor problem: 3 of the top-rated states are solidly inside the frost belt, i.e. far too close to the arctic circle for my tastes. Solution: Two of the top five are in a relatively mild climate zone and are completely hurricane free to boot.

When I left Minnesota some 30 years ago, it was reputed to be second only to California in tax burden.

It looks like a lot of states have raced toward that goal. Minnesota only made #37 this time.
