    New York taxes EVERTHING. It has the highest aggregate tax rate and is ranked dead last on the Pacific Reasearch Institute's ranking of economic freedom, state-by-state. They would tax breathing if they thought they could get away with it. To see a ranking, go to and click on relevant reports.

    No, just goods. Services are not taxed.

    And no, New York is not the most highly taxed area in the world, despite what everyone there thinks. I lived there for 4 years, and I loved the low taxes compared to my native Canada.
