Taxes are just one factor.
Real estate prices.
California is 12th in taxes but you can't afford the expenses to live there.
So WA has zero state tax, sales tax is about 8%, property tax can not exceed 1% of the value...so how is it worst than OR that doesn't have sales tax, but taxes the crap out of everything else including gas. Property tax is about 1.2% and state tax is some of the highest in the country.

They are including Vehicle taxes too. If I remember correctly WA is pretty high.
When you look at the map, one has to wonder what is going on with WA? It almost looks like the Midwest when it comes to taxes!!
