The Carolinas' balanced tax policy and lower cost of living are refreshing changes from many other states. Review the chart below and you will see the difference!


This chart represents an index of cost data collected by the American Chamber of Commerce Researchers Association for six major categories of consumer expenditures.

Categories include grocery items, housing, utilities, transportation, health care and miscellaneous goods and services. The information should be viewed only as a reasonable indication of relative costs.
