Submitted by Carson Now Reader on Thu, 12/01/2011 - 9:19am
Carson City has been selected by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions, as a top retirement destination and will be profiled in the feature story “8 Tempting Low-Tax Towns.” The January/February 2012 issue will be available nationwide on December 20, 2011.
Where to Retire editor Mary Lu Abbott said retirees should carefully consider state and local taxes before relocating. “In considering where to retire, it’s important to look at the total tax impact a particular town will have on your retirement income. In states that have no income tax you may encounter higher local taxes. Levies vary widely among towns and sometimes even neighborhoods within an area. A low-tax town can save retirees several thousand dollars a year. Where to Retire research shows that Carson City is among towns with a lower-than-average tax burden on retirees,” Abbott said.
Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than those who choose to not relocate. They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.
