Ohio seems to be out of control with taxes and permits. I left there about 11 years ago, but most of my family is still living there. My parents continually have their property tax increased even though their method of taxation was deemed unconstitutional by the state. Now I live in rural area in the south with absolutely no plumbing permits for my county and see what a mess that can be. I'd like to see a happy medium between how I work now and what you have to deal with. Times are definitely changing here as the new licensing requirement is being enforced and a plumbing inspector is soon to be hired.
