Master-Planned and Gated Communities in Tax-Friendly States

Some people want to get away from high taxes like they want to get away from snowy, cold winters. Both are valid reasons to start looking for a destination to retire or relocate. Moving to a tax-friendly state can set you up for a better financial situation—and may even have a better climate. You want your hard-earned money to go as far as it can—after all, you’ve worked toward your retirement your whole life. So, when you’re making plans to retire or relocate, you’ll want to think about how your income can fit into your ideal lifestyle.

The Benefits of Choosing a Tax-Friendly State

If you’re making the move from a high-tax state like New York, New Jersey, or Maryland, looking into a tax-friendly state is one of the best things you can do for you, your family, and your wallet. Some of the benefits include:

  • No tax on Social Security income, which can include 401(k)s, IRAs and pensions
  • Additional deductions on other forms of retirement income
  • Low sales, property, estate, inheritance and income tax rates

The goal is to get the most out of your savings and to live at your fullest capacity, and tax-friendly states are a great place to do that. But don’t just move because taxes are low. Consider all the other factors, too. Is it a place you want to live in? Does it have the amenities—dining, shopping, attractions, etc.—that you want in your everyday life? You should also look for other potential taxes that aren’t as nice. While tax-friendly states are generous in most tax areas, some may have drawbacks. For example, a state may have low income tax but a higher sales tax.

A Look at Some Tax-Friendly States

Delaware –  A destination full of gorgeous beaches, rich history, and beautiful scenery, the charm of seaside life is almost enough to make anyone want to move at the drop of a hat. But to sweeten the deal, Delaware is kind to your retirement incomes, offers low property tax, and has no sales tax.

Pennsylvania -  Full of history, an enticing geographical landscape, and a climate that’ll make you want to spend most of your time outdoors, this state is also easy on your wallet. No tax on retirement incomes, a low sales tax, and a lower-than-average cost of living make it an ideal place to retire or relocate.

Florida - If the Sunshine State is your escape from frigid winters, you’ll be pleased to know it’s also tax-friendly. You don’t have to worry about income tax, and your Social Security benefits and 401(k)s are untaxed at state levels.

North Carolina -  Enjoy a bit of southern charm, your choice of a mountain or seaside backdrop, and shorter winters. But that’s not all. Lower taxes and lower cost of living make this state an even more desirable destination.

Retire Tennessee Program Communities

Nashville, TN

Whether you’re ready for full-time retirement or want to relocate to a better place, Tennessee is a state that deserves your attention.

Consider these facts before deciding on another location: Tennessee collects no state tax on income or other retirement-plan benefits and no sales tax on prescription drugs. Property taxes in Tennessee are very reasonable, especially with available exemptions for retirees and age 65+ residents, resulting in the second-lowest overall state and local tax burden per capita in the nation. And Tennessee offers the eighth-lowest cost of living in the U.S.—more than 10% below the national average.

The Retire Tennessee program is a state government initiative designed to spread the word about all of the great reasons for retiring or relocating to the Volunteer State. From the Great Smoky Mountains in the east to the banks of the Mississippi River in the west, a total of 19 urban and rural counties in the program highlight the unique natural attractions and cultural amenities that each has to offer.

Tennessee has more than 60 state and national parks with some of America’s finest freshwater fishing lakes and hiking destinations that range from the 210-mile Cumberland Trail to Chattanooga’s 16-mile Riverwalk. The delightful four-season climate means that you can enjoy a round of golf or a kayak excursion any week of the year. And the world-famous Tennessee music scene includes Beale Street blues in Memphis, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and bluegrass festivals in charming mountain towns like Kingsport and Cookeville.
