Pittsburgh charges taxes from residents about different stuff. If you are a resident of Pittsburgh, you'll know what I mean. My husband used to work in Pittsburgh and his former officemates complains about their taxes.
The advantage of those taxes are being returned to the tax payers in form of recreations and stuff such as the Pittsburgh Zoo and other recreation areas. Here in WV, the taxes are not so much compared to that in PA but as you can see, there's not so much going on here. The residents here goes to recreation places in PA because we don't have many places here to go to.
Posting this in behalf of hubs who is very busy doing stuff hehehe. Thanks for dropping by and commenting folks!
