It’s no secret that Florida has been, and continues to be, the top retirement destination in the country. Wonderful weather and astounding affordability are just some of the factors that drive droves of early-retirees and soon-to-be seniors to our scenic coasts in search of serenity. But with more than 65,000 square miles of temperate land and nearly 1,200 miles of coastal opportunities, a relocation and retirement to Florida can make dropping your pin on the map a bit more difficult. And, as Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year: Tax Season! Said no one, ever. But as the year comes to an end and we look forward to the holidays, many of us are also considering our tax implications for the coming year. It is no secret that Florida does not have a state income tax, which is fantastic, but unfortunately that’s not the only taxes to consider, especially for retirees. The good news is that a recent study by Kiplinger’s found that Florida was the 8th most tax-friendly state in the country for retirees. Florida has an about average sales tax rate, an average property tax rate (if you’re not on the oceanfront!) and there are additional homestead exemption benefits for homeowners aged 65+.
