Top 10 States for Taxes: Florida?
Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” If you’re like most Americans, paying Uncle Sam is your largest financial burden. In fact, the nation as a whole doesn’t earn enough money to pay its total tax bill for the year until mid-April. Making matters worse for some individuals, taxes can vary significantly between states.

Nighttime Bridge Closure Notice for Flagler [North] Bridge
Posted by R. Michael Brown
Published: Thursday, 02 April 2015 14:51

The Flagler Memorial Bridge will be closed and traffic will be detoured from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday, April 7 through Friday, April 10 to refresh striping and adjust concrete barrier wall and maintenance of traffic (MOT) devices on the bridge.  During these closures, drivers who want to go east or west over the Flagler Memorial Bridge will be detoured to the Royal Park Bridge.

Please note that this schedule might change because of weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

This work is being performed in conjunction with the Flagler Memorial Bascule (draw) Bridge Replacement Project.

This Design/Build Project includes replacing the existing bridge with a new bascule bridge connecting the Town of Palm Beach and the City of West Palm Beach over the Lake Worth Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway. The new bridge is being built south of the existing bridge, which will remain open during construction. 

The Flagler Drive overpass will be replaced with an “at-grade” intersection. New lighting, pedestrian features, traffic signals, drainage, and landscaping are also included in this project. The estimated cost of this project is $97.6 million.

Top 10 States for Taxes: Florida?

Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” If you’re like most Americans, paying Uncle Sam is your largest financial burden. In fact, the nation as a whole doesn’t earn enough money to pay its total tax bill for the year until mid-April. Making matters worse for some individuals, taxes can vary significantly between states.

Here's a rundown of the worst and the best:

(1) New York, (2) California, and (3) Nebraska are the top for Highest Taxes.

(1) Wyoming, (2) Alaska, (3) Nevada, and (4) Florida are the top for Lowest Taxes.
