Anyone have a suggestion for the most accurate cost of living comparator or calculator? I’m finding most don’t consider taxes in the mix and I don’t trust most of what I’m getting back.
The ones I know about are Bankrate, CNNMoney, NerdWallet, and SmartAsset.
All of them make blanket assumptions and simplify way too much. I prefer using a default Google sheets template for annual budget. Then, extrapolate numbers from my real life numbers using individual categories on one of the calculators. Get taxes from smartasset. And expected salary from levels.fyi
Tedious but works.
