State Income Tax: None
State Sales Tax: 6%
While not the best place to retire from a strictly tax point of view (all property is taxable at 100% of its market value) — Florida is one of the best places to retire when looking at the whole equation. With boating, fishing, and golfing galore across the state, Florida is a mecca for retirees. The Tampa area along the Gulf is a retiree favorite, with clubs dedicated to entire communities of those who are living out their golden years in paradise.
