Florida, Texas, and South Dakota are the usual top contenders for domicile for those that do not own a sticks & bricks house and can make a choice. You are very wise to consider ALL of the costs before deciding. Few people do that and then discover health insurance options limited in South Dakota, or extreme vehicle "import" fees in Florida.

After all of the math exercise, be certain everything is in sync: DL, plates, insurance, health insurance, voter registration, CCW permit, etc. This becomes important when you see flashing red lights behind you and want the traffic stop to be as brief and as few questions as possible.

CA and some East Coast states seem to be at the top of everyone's get-out-of-town list to cut the tax burden.

South Dakota

We registered in South Dakota when we went fulltime four years ago. Advantages: low taxes, swap your old driver license for a new one, no jury duty, show up one night every four years, absentee voting, and Americas Mailbox will help set you up with everything you need (plus they are great to work with). It's worth checking out.

Rent from a freind

My full time brother went the SD route. We just went full time in July and stayed with Ohio as our residence, primarily due to be able to maintain our current licenses: (teacher, CDL, High School Ref, CCW, etc.) AND to be able to continue to vote in a state where our vote makes a difference !!!! To minimize the insurance costs, we "rent" ($20/mth) a closet in a friend's home to get a street address. The friend also handles our mail for us. The big win is that by having a renter's policy on a "room in a house" it significantly reduced our auto/trailer and storage facility insurance.

I would just say that as the residents vote, so goes the state. Sense many are leaving failed states I would be looking to move where THEY don't move. The reality is that someone voted to elect politicians that ran a state so poorly that people are fleeing; who raised all the rates and made all the regulations? Just my $0.02

That is fact. I'm in Az. and and an escapee from Cal. just bought the house next door. He left Cal. because the state has too many problems and is too expensive. He says the problems are not caused by the state government and he has no idea why things have gone so wrong.

South Dakota was best in the past. Low registration fee and sales tax. Spend one night, go to dmv with receipts and walk out with a hologram drivers license in a few minutes. You do need to have the address of a mail forwarding service. If you want a firearm, take care of that before you do this - itís not considered a valid residence address. But you can use the address to register to vote.

There are many medical supplement policies with $0 premium, especially in FL. Over 65 (medicare) and Humana is all we need.

We're thinking about an OH -> TN move. So when I do my taxes this year in Turbotax I'll splurge $50 and buy the TN state module. Turbotax will show me to the dollar just how much my state taxes will change with nary a web site involved.

Tennessee has no state income tax. There is a 1% income tax on dividends that end on Jan 2021. State sales tax is close to 10% in most areas.

Last year, we had a 6 month visit to do some rental house renovation and camped out on the driveway. Because of the homeless problem across Los Angeles we were instantly a neighborhood sensation, even getting the sheriff department running out plates to see if we belonged in the neighborhood.

When you say fire arm, I assume permit to carry. When I became a south dokotan, I was summering in northern MN, I just grabbed my tent, all my info, picked a small town, Went to campground, got receipt, set up tent, went to DMV that was only set up once or 2 times a week. Showed recpt, walked out with my commercial divers license. Went to court house, got boat, bike, camper, truck done all at once for redg's.
To change over a permit to conceal, one is sopposed to stay a month. I took a chance, went to sheriffs office, was nice and polite as I could be. Gave lady info, she said I needed to go to the county I was from. She made a call, and a couple uhum yess, um yes thankyous later. She sais $10 please, gave me a temp and got hard copy in the mail.
So I suggest a small town and be really nice and get it done all in one dayish.
All titles were done by the mail forwarding company for me, for a fee of coarse.
This worked out great for me, others may have different experiences.

Any advice?
Hummm, hate he politics but love the insurance? Taxes are what's paid to be civilized (and healthy).
