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.

Best Walking Trails | Best of the Best 2017 Community Awards | carolina colours

Carolina Colours

New Bern, NC
Homes: $280K - $600K Lots: $50K - $125K

Carolina Colours brings to life the very best of small Carolina towns-past, present and future. A mere 30 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, the waters of the Trent and Neuse Rivers converge to surround the vibrant waterfront town of New Bern, NC. Community amenities include the 25+-acre Carolina Lake, a Harris Teeter grocery, parks, trails and sidewalks, an Activity Campus with golf, fitness, tennis, swimming, pickleball and-for those quiet moments-rocking chairs.

Located in New Bern, NC, perhaps North Carolina’s most desired small town retirement destination for the past 25 years, CAROLINA COLOURS offers a variety of living environments and lifestyle choices. While typical homesites are of a size that many modern communities consider over sized, these half acre and larger sites have proven popular and have allowed numerous custom homes to be constructed, giving the core of the community an eclectic but attractive architectural composition, with trees abundant.

With quality custom builders ready to help you design and build on any homesite you purchase and with three regional/national builders constructing dozens of homes for sale that will be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2022, your choices of location within the community are varied. Carolina Colours Realty, located on-site, sells only new and resale properties within Carolina Colours and is staffed with agents that know all there is to know about the many properties and activities within the community and the New Bern area. In this period of high inflation, Carolina Colours still provides one of the best values in the coastal plain of North Carolina for those that want an attractive, planned community with numerous amenities and activities to fit any lifestyle. And for golfers, the Carolina Colours course is widely considered the premier layout in the region.

The Carolina Colours Golf Course has been very well received. The course is considered by many one of the most attractive and fairest tests of golf in the region, with six teeing alternatives allowing players from scratch golfers to beginners the proper challenge, with sufficient variety for those that play four times a week. Unlike many new courses that create a setting, the Carolina Colours course, designed by Bill Love, the long time chairman of the environmental committee of the National Association of Golf Course Architects, fits into a wooded, rolling landscape as though it belongs. Even non-golfers love to ride or walk its paths.

What sets Carolina Colours apart, however, is its incredible sense of community. From Friday night gatherings for drink and food at the Pavilion, the 16,000-square-foot community clubhouse, to seemingly endless scheduled activities, both active and passive, neighborhood gatherings, walking and biking, organized trips and more, the community welcomes newcomers with a smile and an open invitation to join with others as frequently as one desires.

New Bern, North Carolina’s first capital city, has its historical districts and quaint shopping areas right downtown, where the Neuse and Trent rivers converge, giving many an Annapolis feel. With abundant local marinas and the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean only about 30 miles away, water activities abound. And with a commercial airport and close proximity to major highways, New Bern is easy to get to. Once there, the quality of medical care and the numerous regional cultural and festival type events allows for a life that can be as active or inactive as suits any chosen lifestyle.

Tower Hill

Lewes, DE
Homes from the upper $600K

Tower Hill is the latest addition to Lewes, Delaware, a quaint seaside town situated at the mouth of the Delaware Bay. Although Lewes has roots going back to 1631, the newly constructed homes at Tower Hill will surely attract a new generation of townsfolk to the coastal community.

Developed by Carl M. Freeman Companies and built by K. Hovnanian Homes, Tower Hill consists of 292 single family homes, with lots ranging from 1/5 to ¼ acre and homes consisting of two to four bedrooms. Inside, 10-foot ceilings create open living areas, while some floor plans offer the option of screened patios and separate entertainment rooms. But the heart of the homes at Tower Hill are the gourmet kitchens, with granite countertops, stainless steel GE appliances, and a large island with pull up seating.

Of course, Tower Hill includes a community pool, tennis courts, putting green and a 6,000 square foot clubhouse, among other outdoor facilities that you’ve come to expect. But perhaps the biggest draw to Tower Hill is the surrounding community and the impressive selection of beaches at your doorstep.

Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, and Bethany Beach draw visitors from across the Mid-Atlantic region, and Tower Hill is literally minutes away from all three. To avoid tourists, head to the lesser-known Lewes Beach, a true locals spot. When you tire of the sun and sand, enjoy the town of Lewes, which has a busy historic district with boutique shopping, fine dining, art galleries and cafes. You can also explore the delicate ecosystem surrounding Tower Hill by visiting the nearby Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Redden State Forest, or Cape Henlopen State Park.

The Delmarva Peninsula is known for its relaxed pace of life, unique ecosystems, and pleasant towns. Request more information to be part of it all at Tower Hill.
