Taxes and Your Retirement Destination Where would you like to spend your “golden” years? Near your family? In a bustling retirement community? A condo by a golf course? As you decide where your retirement haven will be, in addition to considering these lifestyle questions, you should research the effects of state tax structures on your projected retirement income. Consider your state tax liability for the following: earned and unearned income taxes, pension income taxes, Social Security benefit taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, and estate taxes. No single tax consideration should be used to determine the most favorable tax environment for your retirement years. You need to analyze your overall financial situation and then look at all of your options.STRPTRED-ASCopyright © 2014 Liberty Publishing, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
