    Just paid my car property taxes online.. FML, what a fucking scam that is! My 5 year old truck is almost as much as the wife's 4 years old car, and my little "crappy" 5 x 10 utility trailer is over $100.00

    DA FUQ CT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dislike...At least for me my town gives me a credit on whatever's most valuable, vehicle or property because I'm a vet. Right now, that's the Taco. Next year it'll be property, so that's $6000 off my property assessment...

    Wethersfield gives me $4500.00 off assessments for property tax's, as I'm a Veteran.
    I'll be moving to Newington in the next few months and their tax structure is a little better but the services ,roads etc. are managed mush better.

    Besides my job, there's very little keeping me here.
    About 3 years till I pull the rip cord and join the other 30k leaving this state.
    Ain't soon enough. :burnrubber:

    My bro in law just moved from WV down to FL. he's been waiting to get out of WV for a while now, but didn't want to come back to CT. Finally convinced his wife to move, and went to FL, more specifically Palm Coast, since he (and my wife) already have family down there.

    Lucking fucking bastard.

    Guess I won't be seeing him as much of him anymore... it was an "easy" 10 hour drive to WV. No way in hell I'm driving to FL as much as we used to go to WV, and no way in hell I'm paying an arm and a leg for plane tickets to go down there as often either.

    I was told to come on and introduce myself so here goes.

    I have an 2009 Tacoma Sport. I like to go on road trips and sleep in the back and my truck has been pretty much everywhere up and down the east coast.

    I know a little bit about trucks but I got mine to try and learn more and hopefully this forum will help me in that department.

    I run the low range offroad 3/2 leveling kit to give the truck a little height and add some looks since everyone is a little superficial right? Also I know a lot of people frown on these but Ive had it in for about 2 years now and honestly don't mind the ride.

    And I just moved to Middletown, born and raised in Higganum aka Higgabama.

    Let me know if any of y'all are in my area!

    -Alex

    Also i have no idea what usual forum etiquette is, so if i'm doing something wrong, please let me know.
