But that’s not the whole issue.
The state with perhaps the best tax rate for retirees is Alaska. While there are of course benefits to living there, the majority of retirees are not able to move so far from family to a place where there are climate concerns and limited cultural and entertainment options.
So we compiled a list that notes the best tax-friendly states for retirees, but one that considers states that offer other lifestyle benefits as well (such as culture, entertainment and a good climate).
Check out the list now (note: tax rates can change at different times by state, so always check state tax offices for updates).
