If while doing your retirement home check list, you realize that you have several locations that are pretty much six of one, half dozen of the other, then the total

State Tax Burden, could be your key decision factor.

 

Type of taxes that make the total burden of State taxes are:

 

·        Property taxes (they tend to vary greatly per location)

·        Sales and Gross Receipts (beware more than one state agency may have taxing power)

·        Specialties State Taxes (alcoholic, motor fuels, insurance, public utilities, tobacco and other products)

·        Licenses, corporate, hunting & fishing, motor vehicles, motor vehicle operators, individual income, interest and dividends, death, gift, documents, and stock transfers.

·        Plus any other State Tax
