When buying a home, there are a lot of factors that come into play- climate, cost of living, lifestyle, and taxes. Fortunately, Florida provides the great weather, all of the activities that you desire, an active lifestyle, and most importantly, a favorable tax environnent Kiplinger listed the 10 most tax-friendly states for retirees, and there is no surprise the Sunshine State made it to the top 5 among other states like Georgia, Nevada, South Dakota, and Pennsylvania. 

Florida exempts Social Security benefits, inheritance tax, estate tax and we don't have a state income tax. The lower taxes are huge incentives for individuals who are seeking for a great lifestyle and a more positive tax situation.

In Florida, there are several property tax exemptions that can help decrease your tax bill given if you are qualified for them. This includes a homestead exemption of up to $25,000 as of 2018, or $50,000 for married taxpayers. 

The average sales tax in Florida is 6%. For many of us, finding a more affordable state to live in can be a smart financial move. Before signing any leases, you should think about where your state of choice gets its revenue.
