Why Florida, Why Now?
Many people have been considering making Florida home someday. This is the year that an idea starts to become reality for many people. Activity and interest in finding a home in Florida have increased with residents in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts the past few months.
Why now? What has changed?
Florida has always been attractive for a lot of reasons however with the record cold and changes to the tax laws it makes sense for the move to happen sooner than later. 4 Nor’easters in one year were too much for many people.
What about the economics? The new tax changes have made high state income tax areas and high property taxes less attractive. So what does that mean? That means that states like New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts are very expensive. A New Yorker earning $1,000,000 could owe thousands more to the IRS. Wow.
In Florida we don’t have a state income tax, retirement tax is not taxed and there is no inheritance tax.
