$100 Is Worth More Than $100 In Tennessee

Tax FoundationA study released last week shows the cost of goods and services in the Volunteer State goes farther than some other states in the U.S.
The study from the Tax Foundation, a Washington D.C.-based ‘think tank’ shows the value of $100 state-by-state. In Tennessee, that $100 is really $110.25, which is 16th in the nation.
The organization says the study is based on 2013′s tax numbers, and said the results were based on three other factors: value of land, transportation, and tax and business laws. In Tennessee, with the Mississippi River and Interstate 40 in the boundaries, the cost of goods will be less.
Where is $100 worth the least? The District of Columbia at $84.60. That same money goes the furthest in Mississippi at $115.74.
