Actually I was educated in BC, I only moved here a few years ago for work (like everyone else :) ).

NFLD has 7.7% on the first 31, but then 12.8 percent on the next 31000ish, so that would be cheaper if you made below a certain level.

Ontario is 6.05% on the first 36848 and 9.15% on the next 36850
BC is 5.06 on the first 35kish and 7.7 on the next 35kish

NS is 8.79 on the first 29590 then its a huge jump. So only a bonus if you're low income.

Yukon is 7.04 on first 38k and 9.68 on the next 36k

nanavut is 4% on first 38k, 7% on the next 38.. etc..
NWT are also pretty low

So you can see where I was seeing lower rates in a few provinces and all territories. Albeit BC and Ontario, Territories, have the only real advantage if you're making an average sized income..
If you look at the chart that was linked to, you will see that every province except for BC pays more provincial income tax. If you get above $120,000 even BC pays more than Alberta.

You can easily take care of that by moving to the US.

Was that link to the chart too hard for you to figure out?

Property tax in the USA can be murderous. That's where they get you. And health care costs a fortune.
