per the first link below the windows behind the driver are ALL exempt and the back window is exempt if you have outside mirrors. The second link is to the actual law.

going 30% all the way around will certainly put you in the good.

My plan is 30% on the front 20% the rest of the way around and the clear NON-TINTED UV protection on the windshield

Thanks kaelumsonofson and RDJTX. Those comments help quite a bit. The place I have scheduled to get the tint done suggested 35%

The tint looks great on the yellow blaze hatch I'm not a big fan of the blacked out tail lamps though.

I spoke with Accent Tint and Graphics, www.accenttint.com, and was quoted $295 for 35% 3M. Working on setting up a date to have it done right now.

Based on what I paid and what other people have said, I think you should expect to spend about $300 for a high quality tint.
