Hello Florida: Only 8%.
Will you be paying income tax or will you be ER'd, and what does that do the rankings? For example Hawaii hits income earners pretty good but doesn't tax pensions.

What kind of house can you buy in FL with prop. taxes of only $1744?
(Cheyenne's prop. tax number I can believe, having lived there for awhile.)

Nords, some of us PBs have most of our stash in taxable IRAs. My marginal tax rate will probably not change. I do agree that my taxes will go down because I won't be paying income tax that I am now on my social security/medicare payments.

Does Hawaii hit pensions and SS with income taxes? That's probably a big question when it comes to taxation.

I'm moving to Fla. next month and have watched my taxes on a house I bought there 4 years ago go from 2800 to 8000. Once I homestead the taxes will drop a bit but not much.

I don't think you would want to live in the house with 1744 taxes. Not that taxes that low aren't a good thing I just think the house would not be what most folks would want.

No-- exactly. I know it's considered one of the nation's more tax-friendly states for retirees (sshhhh, we have scorpions too!!) and that these survey rankings included taxable incomes (presumably from paychecks).

Nords
I am looking at those issues to decide where to move in the prospect of ER. What I don't know at this time is whether I will still work (for some time) or not after the move. That much depends on the budget I think I can hold after the move. Today I am living in NJ so it is easy to find a better tax/health insurance treatment.

I will not have a pension so I haven't looked at this issue. I haven't looked at the Social Security exemption issue either but the earlier you retire the less it is relevant as SSI will be a smaller portion of income.

I think it is a very good point though and I started to look at that a bit this morning. I found this AARP document from 2000.
http://assets.aarp.org/rgcenter/econ/ib55_sstax.pdf
Not too easy to read and not too recent. (I anyone has a better document please provide a link.)

From the document: 15 states tax social security "to some degree":
CO CT IA KS MN MO MT NB NM ND RI UT VT WV WI

Re: retirement tax strategy and where to live

It just dawn on me that any tax treatment and health insurance laws may change very significantly in the course of a 40 years retirement. But anyway what choice do we have? This is completely unpredictable and we have to do with current information.

Re: retirement tax strategy and where to live

"Wealth Manager" magazine publishes an annual ranking of the most tax-friendly states. They break it down by both workers & retirees. The magazine was recently sold by Bloomberg to Highline Media but hopefully they'll continue the tradition.

With apologies to Brewer, considering that you're starting from NJ, going almost anywhere else is an improvment!

I can't answer the question but remember that the above data relates to life in the largest metro area in each state (here Jacksonville). Not necessarily representative of the whole state.
