Just wanted to ask a question about what state might be best for me in retirment?
I know that it's not a one size fits all question and states must get there revenue from somewhere, just the least from me the better :).
My situation is a high unearned income (rental, dividend, Government pension and what little I get from bank interest).
I know states get their income from different sources, but which would make the best sense in my situation, Florida? Nevada? I also plan on buying a house so a low property tax would be great as well.
The current property tax I pay on my rental in California was inherited from my parents so I benefit from the Parent to child exclusion that lets me keep their tax rate, which makes a huge difference since its worth well over a million and only being taxed on around $130,000 so ill probably never sell that place.
