Everyone loves to hate taxes. Too high. Too low. Too complicated. The reason for this is simple: our tendency to focus only on what we pay, not how we benefit. What if you considered the cost of your home without considering all the benefits a home brings? Shelter, security, comfort, memories, and more. You might end up hating your home, too.

All the talk we’ve heard lately about how much to tax during an election year is hardly surprising, given the whopper of a tax increase Dannel Malloy signed into law not long after becoming governor. But an even more interesting question is whom to tax.
