No state taxes

Hi all....
Looking for advice and opinions on which "no state tax" state to change our residency.

How hard and costs to register vehicles?

Mail services available? And can you use that as your address?

Looking at South Dakota, Texas, Nevada, maybe Florida

Thanks for your help!

Seven U.S. states currently don't have an income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. And residents of New Hampshire and Tennessee are also spared from handing over an extra chunk of their paycheck on April 15, though they do pay tax on dividends and income from investments.

I not sure if you're looking for a state that has no state income tax or a state that has no state sales tax.

Fla has state sales tax but no personal income tax.

If you have an address you can register a vehicle there. Tags are not expensive compared to other states that base the tag on the value of the vehicle. Florida does not do that. Tags are based on the weight of the vehicle. I think our 45 foot MH was 400 per year yet our cars run around 50 dollars a car per year.

Should have stayed "no state income tax" .....Looking to keep as much of our pensions as possible.

I know you have to have your vehicles inspected in Texas. How is that? Easy, or PITA?

Inspections in TX are relatively simple, but they include an emissions test on gas vehicles.
Diesels are still exempt from emissions test. About $25-$35. Need proof of insurance also.
Can't get vehicle registered without an inspection. Many inspection stations statewide.

Alaska might be a good choice for you. No income tax and if you pick the right city no sales tax. Cities and boroughs may enact their own sales tax but there is no state sales tax. Anchorage as an example has no sales tax but a few hours down the road Homer has 7.5% sales tax. Vehicle registration is fairly cheap my 2009 Safari Cheetah, 40', 33,000 lbs was $205.00 for a 2 year registration with Navy plates. The money you save on plates can be put towards winterizing or fuel to get you south before winter hits.

Check out Escapees.com for Texas info. You have to go to Texas to get a licenses, vehicle transfer one time expense, vehicle inspection and you can use the Escapee RV CG address. Future licenses renewals can be done by mail and by filling out a waive inspection form stating that you are away out of the state, you can bypass the yearly inspection. You really never have to go back to Texas if you don't want to, but if you do you will need to update the vehicle inspection (LEO's don't check that close anymore, BTDT). Escapee's can forward your mail to you and you can also vote by absentee ballot via mail.

WA has no income tax, license tags cost me less than $175 for both the MH and CR-V. Insurance where I am is relatively cheap. The expense is the almost 10% tax on motor vehicles.
They have been trying to pass an income tax for years but one party has been able to hold them in check. But now the party of tax and spend has the Governor, and both House and Senate so we'll see what happens next session.

It's cheaper than that. $58.85.

My pickup tag costs more annually than the moho. All the Florida annual fees are low. There's a one time cost if you bring an additional vehicle into the state. An impact fee so to speak.

Georgia is retiree friendly. In Georgia there is no state tax on Social Security income and there is a $65,000 per person exemption for retirement income for people over the age of 65. No state inspections other that emissions testing during vehicle license renewal in some of the counties, many rural counties have no emissions test. In many counties home owners do not pay school tax and bonds after age 70, some do that at age 65 also (i.e Cobb County at age 65, Paulding County where I live it is at age 70, 1/2 deduction at age 65) State sales tax is 4% but local counties and communities have add on sales tax.

WE use Florida as our residency with no income tax and very reasonable vehicle fees. No special license needed.


WE also use St. Brandan's Isle service https://www.sbimailservice.com/ for our mail. They also assisted us in getting our Florida Driver's license as well as registering to vote in Clay county (where they are located)


As far as medical I am medicare covered and with my supplemental plan (issued in Florida) I am covered anywhere in the US.


Good luck

If you don't plan on actually living in your residency state very much or at all, I would pick one with no income tax, low vehicle and RV tags and insurance costs. If you plan on owning property in that state the cost of purchasing, taxes and insurance should also be factored in.
Washington state where I live is very decent especially if not buying property. East of the mountains is cheaper to own property
