Well, if you're moving from a state that has income tax to SD which doesn't, it would be in your best interest to change EVERYTHING at once. Mailing address, license, vehicle registration, voter registration, etc. Otherwise if your old state decides you're still a resident and subject to their income tax, you won't have as strong a case to fight it.

We live in Renton

We moved into our 5th wheel over a year ago and we rent a lot in a 55 and older community. Both of us just renewed our DL and haven't had any issues with the state. Maybe because we have a permanent address they don't hassle us.

BTW, it's only permanent because I can't find an inexpensive truck big enough to move this monster around. We only have a few more years of the daily grind and then (with luck) we'll pay this off and be able to retire on the cheap. Sooner if the lotto gods will just send a little love my way.

I agree. My understanding is that you have not "established domicile" in South Dakota until you have an SD drivers license. And I'd guess a LEO might have some questions about vehicle tags and drivers license from different states.

Another little legal thing that is important to do is officially notify your former state (where you paid taxes) that you are no longer a resident. Ohio has a form to complete and mail to the dept of taxation. It is similar to giving them a pink slip !! I'm going to enjoy filing out that form.

There must be another explanation because this just can't be true.

Rick
CA must have changed their laws, when I researched it for taking a job in CA and living in the MH there it was 3 months and then they wanted CA taxes and registration of vehicles even though my stick house was in WA.

Nobody knows any different.
I've tried using Apt#, after a short time the address is changed to "PMB #XXX" so they can definitely tell it's a Private Mail Box. This is in WA state BTW.

This is a great point. I wish I had done it when I left California to go full time.

You're probably right about the time. I just gave it a swag at "half" but 3 months makes more sense knowing their way of seeing the world.

While on the subject of residency vs domicile does anyone know if you must use your domicile (SD for me) when applying for Medicare supplemental insurance? I will qualify for Medicare on 11/1 and plan to get most of my medical care in Florida this winter.

Hi okmunky.
It is a bit Mutated.

Medicare is good where ever there is a Dr that will accept you. An advantage plan or medigap plan will be driven the same way but you may be limited to Drs within the providers network. That is the Readers Digest version. Medicare.gov has the rest of it.

I start 10/1. I have selected an Advantage plan. PM me if you want.

Dave

Once my Kodak health insurance went bye-bye due to their bankruptcy, I had to find another source for health insurance.

I believe it is based on your domicile so that's what I did for Alaska. It's the same for auto and RV insurance.

However, the plan that I have is valid all over the country and outside the country.

It's called Medi-Gap Plan F and is administered by Premera of Alaska.

We are not full timers but do have to get O/L renewed,
Because of new laws, in paticular the Federal HR 1268 (P.L. 109-13) aka Real ID Act of 2005, we have to provide two documents showing our residential address. A bank statement, water or electric bill works for this to get it issued.

Per a web search, Homeland Security explains the law and below is minimal that States have to follow or the Feds. will not accept the O/L as ID, or as they say:

"The law prohibits any federal agency from accepting a person's state-issued driver's license or identification card for any official purpose unless the state meets the requirements of the new law".

Minimum Document Requirements
To meet the law's requirements a state must include, at a minimum, the following information and features on any driver's license or ID card it issues:
1. the person's full legal name, date of birth, and gender;
2. the person's driver's license or identification card number;
3. his digital photograph;
4. his primary residence address;
5. his signature;
6. physical security features designed to prevent tampering, counterfeiting, or duplicating of the document for fraudulent purposes; and
7. a common machine-readable technology, with defined minimum data elements.

This could be the problem all the full timers will be facing.
