A lot of things we complain about cost money. It has to come from some kind of tax. That is one reason folks in higher tax states stay there. They expect to get some of their taxes back as services. Particularly past retirement. In NY we don't get the personal property type taxes that bite a lot of RV owners but we do have income tax. It may well be that we are better off than some of the luxury or personal property tax states when the final cost is sorted out.

A good example of that is this past weekend my wife and daughter were driving back from NYC. For us the fastest way to the City is through PA and NJ. However in the winter travelling through PA can be tough because they don't maintain the roads very well. I suggested she take the Thruway which would result in tolls and adds about 100 miles to the trip but at least they maintain the road pretty well when you are driving in the snow and slush. Instead she opted for NJ and PA and it took her over 8 and a half hours to make the 330 mile trip. I don't like paying our high taxes in NY any more than anyone would, but I do think we get some services for our dollars.

There is no move to make all states follow the same tax laws. If it were to pass, think of all of those lawyers who would be out of work if there were only one law, and it was actually easily understandable to the typical tax payer!

The lawyers write the laws, and obviously have a vested interest in making them as complicated as they can in order to employ more lawyers!

To the OP, you say you are already a TX resident, so just join up with Escapees. They will help you establish your new address in Texas and maintain your residency. At that point you could choose never to visit the state again but still legally be a texan.

They're good people, too.

It works--Texan and Escapee member, full-timing. But I was Texas resident before full-timing, so not much change. Medicare supplements can be a hassle, tho.....
