Considering a move to another state? Not so fast. Be sure to weigh state taxes when calculating the difference in cost of living.

Here is our list of the ten least tax-friendly states. All levy above-average property taxes. Income taxes are high in these states, too. And depending on where you live, you could pay up to 10% in combined state and local sales taxes. Making matters worse, some of these states also have the highest gas prices in the U.S., in part because they charge above-average fuel taxes and fees.
