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

States with high income taxes or property taxes could cost you thousands of dollars every year you live there. Other states with high sales taxes or gas taxes could slowly drain your wallet every time you buy something.

Here is our updated list of the 10 least-tax-friendly states in the U.S. Almost all of the states levy property taxes well above the national median of $1,809. In most cases, state income taxes are high, as are combined state and local sales taxes, which could cost you as much as 10% per purchase. Gas taxes are also above the national average of 30 cents per gallon. And some of these states are facing crippling deficits that could lead to future tax hikes.

Take a look.
