    2000 figures: (State taxes=property, sales, fees)

    Income (thousands)  State Taxes    %
    011                  1500          13.4
    023                  2100           9.1
    035                  2800           8.0
    057                  3800           6.7
    145                  6400           4.4

    Tax Sources
    Local Sales   7.1%
    Property tax 45.6
