Most Tax-Friendly

Residents of the Silver State love the fact that there's no income tax in the state. But Nevada also has the seventh-lowest median property tax rate in the country. Sales taxes in Nevada aren't so low, though. There's a relatively high 6.85% state sales tax rate. Plus, local sales taxes can also be tacked on to purchases in the state. But, overall, Nevada is a very tax-friendly place for middle-class families.
