No Taxation Without Representation

"No taxation without representation"

Great words; words I believe in.

I currently live in the tax-free state of New Hampshire.

My weekly pay-check shows my hourly rate, number of hours worked, federal tax, FICA (more federal tax), and.... State tax.

"State tax? NH doesn't have an income tax," you may say.

And you would be right, but Maine does.
Why is the state of Maine taking the money of a citizen of New Hampshire?

Because I work there.

I do not live in Maine.

I can not vote in Maine.

Why am I paying taxes to a government in which I have no representation?
