Taxes and Retirement
Most people think that Florida is the most tax friendly state for retirees. While it offers many advantages, including no retirement income tax and a 50% homestead exemption, several other states are just as easy on the wallet when retirement time arrives. These include Georgia, Mississsippi, Kentucky, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Wyoming, Alaska and Nevada. And on the other end of the scale, California, Utah, New Mexico, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Connecticut, Maryland, Vermont, Indiana and Wisconsin are among the least friendly states when it comes to retirement and taxes.
