VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
I have been in every state and don't like 46 of them- and only one is east of the Rockies. But these MSN picks are really bad. Most retirees do not care about education for the next generations. I do. Several areas of some states have exceptionally low property taxes, such as here in SW Oregon- plus no sales tax to boot. Weather is better here in SW Oregon than most would imagine as well. The only real draw back to Oregon is the rain from November to April. While the school districts are poor all around the state, the schools are still better here than in 90% of the nation.
After ten years of retirement, I am considering moving to Costa Rica. Personally I like warmth and would never consider living in PA, AK, DE, NH, WYO, etc. As far as Texas is concerned, been there dozens of times there seems to be only one place there with any intelligent life forms: Austin. But Austin is outrageously expensive. It is a wonder the people there do not overthrow their government and lower property taxes. I looked at houses in the Austin area the same value as my Oregon home on 15 acres ($340K) and the property taxes in Austin monthly were equal to mine for an entire year!
More LYING BIAS...
No Texas and NO Florida...Sheesh, I guess all those retirees moving to those 2 States must be senile...NO, the writers are lying sacks...
Seriously, you'd have to be an idiot not to have Florida and Texas on list
It is SAD!!! that our government has grown so far out of control of the people ,,, that people are willing to move to different State to avoid over-taxation ,,, other countries like China refer to America as the "Welfare War fare Country",,, or as Social Economist state" the only thing that is going to cuase or country to have a Economic crisis is To Much government"
Geo Political Social Economics
Its unfortuanate that our Leaders do Not Even Understand Basic Social Economics
what about the 5% sells taxes that the cities put on the state tax in AL.so the total tax is 9% not 5% .
Hey Why Not Move To New Jersey? The Garden/Garbage State... LOL ;)... I've Lived Here My Whole Life And Loved It Here On The Jersey Shore In Monmouth County... But Now Can't Wait To Get Out!
58 years in Cali and I ain't movin' no-where! Prop 13 makes up for a lot of 'other taxation'. 5 miles from the coast and it's generally a gorgeous day, every day.
Thinkin' we'll have to keep a close eye on the new 'super-majority' just in case, though...
