Texas was not listed, low cost of living, and no state income tax??
It seems like someone took a hatful of states and picked the first 10 for results of nothing.
Is it me or is the media making up stories to fill up space on the computer???
Too bad...another example of INCOMPLETE research and reporting. You included PA in your article, and while what you did report was correct, you failed to provide a complete picture. PA has State, County, and Local taxes on real estate in most of the state. So depending on the area in which you choose to retire, you could make an annual School Tax payment well in excess of your mortgage payment to say nothing of the "real-estate" portion of the taxes. You also don't include the "restaurant" tax of 6% - so not all your food is tax free. While the State Sales Tax of 6% is correct, Allegheny County is 7% and Philadelphia County is 8%.
DO MORE RESEARCH BEFORE YOU REPORT!
Arkansas has many retirees.. because our cost of living is wonderful for those people. plus if or when they do finally come here.. they love Arkansas, many buy property and if not move back soon will when they finally do retire.
Our Governor Beebe , has just presented his New Legislation list for the 2013 Legislative Session which begins soon, one of his prime points is to remove more sales tax from food, he hopes to totally eleminate any tax on food., our state will make up the diffrence on other things, if it's needed.
Our STATE is mandated to stay within our STATE Budget. ( it cannot go over the monies we have in our state budget )
Come one and all to our beautiful state, once you see it YOU too will love it here.
It's the Live Free or Die State. We do have property taxes, though you wouldn't know it given the state of education in NH. NH does NOT support education. Florida has better schools!
thank you very much
