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.

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+. Plus, there is no estate tax or inheritance tax

Beach cruisers were developed in the 1920’s and 1930’s in response to slowed bicycle sales following the Great

From its stock car racing roots, to motorcycle madness twice a year, to a fabled Spring Break past, Daytona Beach has made memories for millions over the years. But one of the most overlooked yet alluring aspects of life in Daytona Beach is found along the Atlantic coastline, where the
