Ain't Like You're Used To
If you move to East Tennessee, remember that this isn't like where you moved from
The problem seems to arise not with the reality that out-of-Staters move to East Tennessee because of our low cost of living and lack of an income tax, it is that some of these people seem to want to have their cake and eat it too. Some seem to expect that they can maintain low taxes and cost of living and still have the same kind of services that they had from their local governments "up North." Take it from someone who knows-you aren't up North anymore. With that in mind, we've decided to write this short guide for anyone new to the area or thinking of moving here so that you will know what you can expect-and not expect-when you come to East Tennessee.
